Cameron’s Story

  • After being Diagnosed with ADHD Cameron discovered that articulating ADHD is a critical step in ADHD Awareness

  • Half of the people in the world do not think about thinking

  • Cameron was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 28 while working as a teacher at a Quaker School

  • Cameron was a “Gentle Giant” when he was a student and did not cause problems and was therefore overlooked as being a person who needed help

  • Cameron realized he was ADHD during a presentation at a retreat he was hosting in his own home

  • Cameron goes speaks about what the Quakers believe, how they live and what his job at school entailed. He further discusses the difficulties is ADHD presented him.

  • Awareness Engagement Completion

  • AEC is a theory developed by Cameron and Denslow Brown aka The Organizer Coach

  • In order to complete a task, you have to engage a task

  • “The problem is not usually the engine, it’s the gearbox” ADHD people spend too much time revving our engines while in neutral.

  • Cameron helps his ADHD clients to discover the tasks they need to do and the ones they can simply shed.

  • People are either too far into awareness and do not achieve completion or they are trying so hard to complete a task that they simply are not aware.
