"If you have been living your life based on what others tell you are the ways you must learn, and those ways haven’t been working for you, you may be apt to believe that you are incapable of learning."
Everyone has a unique way they learn. It may be the mandated prescribed way of school, work or home but after over 20 years of working with uniquely wired human beings with ADHD, I can tell you each one of them found their unique way. They learned their own way, which took them into new worlds they never thought they could enter. Once they opened the door to understanding their unique way of learning, they discovered their own creative ways of contributing their greatness to the world.
The world around me likes to measure peoples' reputations by the level of their performance and results.
I on the other hand, measure myself by my invisible traits, attributes and capacities. These can not be measured. They do define the genuine authentic character of who I am and what I choose to do in my life.
For the December 2018 issue of Attention magazine, Barbara Luther, MCA, MCC, MA, ADDCA Director of Training, wrote a brief article titled Living with Inattentive ADHD, and psychologist Kathleen Nadeau, PhD, wrote an accompanying article about Inattentive Women with ADHD. These are good descriptions of what inattentive ADHD is like. Inattentive men will probably relate to these articles as much as women will. They are quick reads, and Kathleen's article gives several additional examples of life with inattention.
