ADHD ANNUAL CONFERENCE: On This Saturday. Book Now To Avoid Disappointment.


Few of us experience ADHD as a “gift” and most of us know it’s downside. But ADHD comes with traits that other people wish they had such as creativity, high energy, and intense focus. These traits can be extremely useful, and when that happens, a kind of superpower.

Many adults with ADHD live full, productive lives. Countless highly successful men and women in all areas of life have also succeeded. There are challenges, but by using the strengths and managing the pitfalls you can thrive.

Continuing the Research - What Happens to Attention in ADHD

Last Saturday 7th September Dr Alison (Sally) Poulton led one of the biggest, most exiting ADHD Awareness Afternoons we have ever run.

ADDults with ADHD is proud to have hosted this contribution to research into finding a better way to explain the experience of ADHD to others, finding an analogy or illustration that:
  • people with ADHD can relate to, and
  • people who don't have ADHD can better understand

If you didn't get a chance to attend the event or make your contribution, it is not too late.

Sally has written: "I'm very happy to get more information from more people answering the questions:

  • "What happens with your attention when you try to work, study or fill in a form?"
  • "Can you think of any device or picture that illustrates how your brain functions?"

 Dr Poulson plans to publish the results of assembling and analysing all the ideas generously provided. On Saturday she told all assembled that the next step might be to publish the illustrations that arise from the analysis and seek feedback on them.

ADDults with ADHD looks forward to supporting this next step in due course. Stay tuned.
