About The Manual

Having ADHD is like having an Owner’s Manual for Life that seems to work for everybody else except you. They all got the “some assembly required” IKEA dresser and you’re sitting amongst a pile of assorted pieces you’ve never seen anyone deal with before.

So what do we do? Do we scrap our pieces? Or do we scrap the manual?

My name’s Abby Chau. I’m a marriage and family therapist in Seattle, WA who also happens to have ADHD. I am in the process of ripping up this neurotypical manual I’ve been carrying around for too long. I’m writing a new one from scratch: a manual that can help me, my clients, and the rest of my ADHD family fit together all these pieces we were born with, because I don’t want to get rid of a single one. Join me?
