If you stare at the wall for hours without blinking but get distracted by a leaf...If you feel like you have more in common with your cat than your boss...If you feel like you’re drowning in piles of paper…
...you might be missing some Executive Function skills.
Up to 85% of children diagnosed with ADHD (formerly ADD) never grow out of it, yet only 10% of adults with ADHD receive treatment.
When your brain is a runaway train, the focus and task management skills required at work, the planning, organization, and emotional regulation necessary for parenting, and the social skills you need for adult friendships don’t exactly come easy.
If you have underdeveloped Executive Function skills, you may not have the tools in your arsenal to function the way you want.
How could you? You’ve never been taught. At least, not yet!
You are not destined to a life of paper clutter, missed meetings, and lost keys (for the fifth time today).
No matter how many times you’ve tried before, no matter how many self-help books have failed you, it’s not too late. The skills and strategies you need to live fully—productive, organized, focused, and calm—are available to you.
