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.
