1206) GETTING THINGS DONE: STRATEGIES FOR ADULTS WITH ADHD
 

ADHD is a neuro-biological condition that even in the presence of best intentions has a significant impact on a person's ability to plan and follow through on tasks and projects. People who have this condition are often very creative, passionate and intelligent, but unable to live up to expectations of themselves or of others. Typical motivators for getting things done such as degree of importance, rewards or consequences don’t work for the ADHD person’s “interest based” nervous system. This experience has been even more challenged by the stress of the pandemic. In this class you will learn how ADHD shows up, the brain challenges that underlie it and what can be employed to get things done. DIANE THOMSON, Life Management/ADHD Coach and Professional Organizer
