Describing ADHD

Posted by Coach Kim Collins on June 23, 2010

I was recently given an interesting assignment in an ADD coach training that I’m in. I was asked to write 2 sentences: one describing how I would explain ADHD to an everyday person and another describing how I would explain it to an employer.

I posed these two questions to a small group that I run and here are the sentences I crafted from their response.

  1. As  a person with ADHD I can focus intently on things that are engaging, but at the same time, am easily distracted when doing routine tasks; consistency in any endeavor is extremely challenging.
  2. I can be an extremely creative, flexible, and energetic employee when my job responsibilities are clearly defined, when I am given deadlines, feedback, and can maintain frequent communication with my boss.

How would you describe ADHD (in positive terms) to someone in one sentence? Please send me your response by commenting on this post.

The 10 Most Important ADHD Medications

Posted by Coach Kim Collins on April 1, 2010

I don’t usually post things about medication, but one of my blog readers recently sent me a link to a blog with a great list of ADHD medications. I know that the world of ADHD medications can be very confusing especially to those of you who are recently diagnosed and are just starting to consider the medication route. I think that it is very important that we all know something about the medications that we take. So, this list can be a starting point to educate yourself on what is on the market. Use this list to talk with your doctor about what you’re taking and why, how it’s working, potential side effects, and what other options are available. Click HERE to see the list of ADHD medications.
