Listen for one of the best descriptions you'll ever hear of "Onmidirectional hearing". It's the way people with ADHD hear and one of the main reasons a traditional classroom will forever be a poor fit for these students. Not to mention a workplace for an adult who has no idea the role her hearing plays in her inability to focus. This knowledge is game changing. You can watch the video version of this podcast here Send in a voice message:

It isn't hyper focus or passion for things that interest us that is the true SUPERPOWER of living with ADHD. I believe its something else, and I discuss it at length in this episode. It's a power we're often discouraged from using but one you must reclaim to make your full contribution to this world. Take back this power and you can change lives. --- Send in a voice message:
Below is an overview of what I share in this episode. Of course when the recording started I had a lot more to say. Enjoy!Context: Mom (client), texted Coach (me) because young child was throwing a tantrum and kicking seats in the car because she didn't feel heard.Phone handed to child so they could text me. I asked strategic questions to get to the bottom of what the trigger was (not feeling heard).I offered the following strategy to the child,Think about making suggestions or sharing your thoughts like a game of go fish (the card game). The whole point is to see if they have what you’re looking for.Let’s say one of your ideas for lunch is McDonald’s. So your goal isn’t to make them want McDonald’s, your goal is to see whether they want to go to McDonald’s or not. Do they have the same interest/same card as the one you want, with me on this?All you want from them is a yes or no answer.If it’s yes, GREAT! That’s what you want to, if it’s NO you have to go fish. Fish for another option until you find one they have an interest in too.Make sense? Great! The child loved it to.--- Send in a voice message:
