It’s June’s Q&A epiosode on the podcast and I’m joined by Brendan to answer your questions. We chat about topics ranging from the effects and need for medication to how to manage and cope with various aspects of having ADHD. There were a ton of great questions this month and you won’t want to miss the responses.
What do sticky notes, note pads, and index cards have in common? Several of our questions had to do with accountability. Write things down! Put away the computer and put pen to paper, not only does this help keep you focused, you are also more likely to absorb the information. Learn more throughout the show.
Need to dive deep into how manage family responsibilities and schedules when members are on different systems? Change your verbiage and you may be able to alter their response. We spend a good bit of time on this topic because keeping an ADHD family on track is very important.
There were so many fantastic questions this month that we didn’t get to them all. If you’re not already, consider becoming a Patron to access the full episode. Also, let us know what your questions are for next month’s episode.
