ADHD is a woefully under-diagnosed neuro-developmental disorder that affects around 1 in 30 of the population, and is different from other neurological differences, such as Autism or Asperger’s, because it can be successfully treated with medication. My book on ADHD Better Late than Never aims to inspire others to seek diagnosis and live happily with this complex and often misunderstood disorder. It was launched at the start of ADHD Awareness month, October 2020, and can be bought on Amazon here
After my diagnosis, in 2017, I retrained as a secondary school teacher of French and Spanish, having formerly worked as a freelance journalist and commissioning editor for the Times. I came to my diagnosis after my 19-year-old twin son was diagnosed with ADHD, aged 12.
To combat stigma around Adult ADHD – I also performed a play I wrote called Late to the Party at the Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017. You can find out more about the plays Director Hendrick January and I have worked on here
This site documents my start in researching ADHD both for my son, as a child, and myself, as an adult.
I hope you enjoy what I found…
