Talking Back to ADHD Checklist
1. Understand ADHD: See an ADHD symptom as an ADHD symptom. Distractibility, forgetfulness, unawareness of time, procrastination, inefficiency, impulsiveness, reactivity, and all the rest of ADHD are not a judgment. If you were wheezing, you’d get rid of the mold in your basement, make lifestyle changes, and find a doctor you trust. Around ADHD, almost any symptom can be managed by seeing it for what it is, particularly as it reflects on self-management skills.
