ADHD or Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurobiological condition. The in-ability to focus and to complete tasks is one of the ways it manifests. As a professional organizer, I help individuals de-clutter their homes and offices and organize their spaces with new systems.
In addition, I am co-hosting a support group for parents with children with ADHD. Each month, for the past two years, we bring professionals to the group who can speak on ADHD and provide useful information to help their children manage ADHD challenges. Parents learn form each other, gain useful knowledge and find new resources from visiting professionals.
Some common symptoms and problems of living with ADHD include:
- Poor attention; excessive distractibility
- Physical restlessness or hyperactivity
- Excessive impulsivity; saying or doing things without thinking
- Excessive and chronic procrastination
- Difficulty getting started on tasks
- Difficulty completing tasks
