Discomfort with Silence

ADHD Education

Lately, I have been observing people in conversations more than I ever have before; and what I have noticed is most people are very uncomfortable with silence.

Whether you are at a restaurant with friends, listening to a lecture or simply having a conversation with a friend, I sense there is an underlying pressure that most people feel to fill the space of silence. You perceive a void and feel responsible for creating some sort of response because the silence makes you squirm in your mind and body.

Perfectionism Prevents Action**

ADHD Education | Videos

There is no such thing as the perfect plan or action to produce the perfect result. Sometimes I have so many things going on in my head and in my life that I don’t know where to begin. This often leads me towards a strong tendency to try and do everything perfectly: “If I can’t do all of these things perfectly than I won’t do them at all.”

ADHD Education | Videos

In many of our teleclasses at the ADD Coach Academy we have intense discussions about the pervasive ignorance and lack of understanding of ADHD. This not only occurs in the health care professions and public sector, it is also very prevalent in our academic institutions, from primary schools to universities, where there is a lack of support for the natural ways human beings learn.

What Percy Jackson and the Olympians Can Teach Us about ADHD

ADHD Education

When you watch a movie you have the power to suspend reality and imagine anything you want: nothing is impossible. You can even be a demigod with ADHD and dyslexia.

In the debut movie “Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” Percy is a 17 year old high school boy with ADHD and dyslexia struggling with school, and getting into lots of trouble. Unbeknownst to him, he is also the son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea.

The character Percy illustrates the real-life paradox facing individuals with ADHD and dyslexia. He has unique strengths that are way above average but also has some noticeable weaknesses. I have worked as an ADHD coach for over 10 years, and found often that there is no middle ground for ADDers. Percy’s ability to get things done in some situations is superior, and in other situations is very inferior.
