Former ADDCA student Kris Moauro wrote a wonderful new song called Colors.
It's a story of self-discovery, self-acceptance and looking at things, people and the world as a whole in a new, non-judgmental way. 'I can see in colors I do it everyday I just don't see the grey'..."
I have ADHD. No, I’ve never been officially diagnosed as an adult.
As a toddler in the early 90s, the teachers just called me “challenged” and told my parents I needed help.
In what I can only describe as heroism, my parents refused to medicate me. Instead, they were advocates for me through and through, and over time, I learned to deal with being endlessly distracted.
Master Coach, and ADDCA Teleclass leader, Jay Perry wrote this powerful poem.
Ultimately, the quality of life for individuals with ADHD is affected by their ability to pause and use self-restraint - essentially applying your mind’s mental brakes. Pausing is the difference between reacting with old patterns of negative behavior that result in dire consequences, versus consciously responding by discerning your optimal options -before taking action- which can lead to a better outcome.
