Great piece on Ryan Tubrity’s show yesterday when John Doyle spoke to Ryan about being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as an adult and the influence it has on his day-to-day life and his first year studying law in UCC as a mature student. Go on you need to listen to it!
Students all across the world are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, commonly known ADHD. Many people don’t know how it feels to have it; parents don’t understand how difficult it can be for a child to have ADHD.
It is important for people to be aware of this issue because many think it’s fake or used as an excuse to be hyper, or not do classwork.
Those children struggle everyday to concentrate in school ... I myself know how they feel.
I love reading about other people’s ADHD life hacks. It’s a great way to gather ideas to experiment with.
However, with so many tips and tricks out there, working out which life hacks might work for you personally can be very challenging.
For example, many individuals with ADHD become overwhelmed with the sheer volume of suggestions offered to them … (and we all know overwhelm can be a trigger for procrastination or make us want to give up altogether).
