Personal experience. Life stories. Professional advice.
Welcome to Inside ADHD, a blog brought to you by ADHDFamilies.ca! This blog is geared towards people who have direct experience with ADHD, whether that is themselves or a family member. In upcoming posts, you can expect to see advice from the ADHD Families experts as well as writing directly from the ADHD Families online community. That’s where you come in.
If you are a person with ADHD or a parent of a child with ADHD, we strongly encourage you to exercise your creative writing muscles and share your stories with us. By sharing your stories about ADHD, you give your experience a voice, which is likely to help other people who have similar experiences. So, what exactly are we looking for? Tell us about:
- Your journey through assessment and diagnosis (and acceptance of the diagnosis).
- Strategies or technology that you have found useful.
- Any insights you have learned since diagnosis or any changes in your perspective.
- Coping with other conditions (e.g., anxiety, depression) in addition to ADHD.
Keep your submissions between 500 to 700 words or less and submit them to us here for review. We will contact you with information about your submission posting.
So that’s it. Now go get writing! We know you have a lot to share with the world!
Email your submissions to library[at]canlearnsociety.ca.
