We’re not just talking about the sleep difficulties (which are many)…

We mean the working harder than everyone else to just get by, or 

Like the only crayon in a box of standard #2 pencils.

But here’s the REAL truth

What you don’t have is the information, resources and connections to help you thrive.

5 Steps to Self-Accommodation In Your Workplace

Here’s Your Host: Laurie Dupar

Hi, Laurie Dupar here from CoachingforADHD.com and the International ADHD Coach Training Center (iACTcenter.com) and trust me when I say that I have been there! When my son was diagnosed with ADHD over 17 years ago, I didn’t know where to turn. Then I found ADHD Coaching and a community of support. Now, over a decade and a half later, I am combining my experience as a Nurse Practitioner with my passion for decreasing the stigma and increasing the awareness of ADHD, coaching people privately and training emerging coaches to use their personal experience with ADHD to become ADHD coaches.  And my son, now 26, has proudly finished his deploy in our United States Navy, moved close by and is attending college to become a computer technology expert!

I can definitely say the key to my son’s and our family’s success was connecting with others who had been there. The sharing of ideas and stories, and focusing on strengths and strategies are what made the difference between surviving and thriving with ADHD. I will be forever grateful for the people and resources available to us during that time. We definitely could not have done it on our own!

So, for the 8th year in a row, I am once again hosting the Succeed with ADHD Telesummit to provide you with the best people and resources I can gather to share their wealth of experience and ADHD wisdom with you. This telesummit would not be possible except for the generosity of the speakers who give their time and expertise and our sponsors who make it possible to reach you, no matter where you are in the world. I want to thank both the presenters and our sponsors who make this telesummit possible. Together they provide an incredible diversity of resources and I know you will enjoy getting to know them.

What You Will Learn

The ADHD/Menopause Masquerade – Hormonal Shape Shifting

Presenter: Linda Roggli of ADDiva.net and ADHD Palooza

“Forgetful.“ “Foggy.” “Distracted.” The words may read like an ADHD playbook, but in fact, they describe the cognitive effects of menopause for many midlife women. In addition to the (oh-so-wonderful) physical symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes and weight gain, research shows that there is a distinct effect of diminishing hormones on women’s brain function. When we add ADHD to the picture, that effect can be even more disturbing. In this session, we’ll discuss “normal” cognitive aging and then compare the experience of ADHD women as they enter this new life phase. Then we’ll offer some options that can mitigate the profound changes that can begin as early as 10 years before actual menopause. Join us for this fascinating and surprising session.

Be sure to get Linda Roggli’s extra special ADHD Swag Bag gift available to you just for signing up:

NEED DESCRIPTION

 

Run Your Day with Less Procrastination, More Prioritization, and Better Time Management

Presenter: Alan P. Brown

Are you running your day, or is your day running you? For us ADHDers, it’s invariably the latter.

Planning our day is one of the most fundamental productivity hacks there is. Yet, few of us actually have a well-oiled habit of planning. Then there’s the actual running of our day, with all the distractions and interruptions of the real world that derail us.

ADHD/productivity coach Alan P. Brown shares evidence-based ways to make your plan and deliver on it, resulting in less procrastination, better prioritization and improved time management.

Great Sexual Connection is Extra Important for Couples with ADHD

Presenter: Ari Tuckman, PsyD, CST

A couple’s sex life can be a source of strife or positive connection. Couples where one partner has ADHD will have enough struggles by day, making the potential benefits of a good sex life that much more important. This presentation will be based on groundbreaking research into ADHD couples’ sexual and relationship satisfactions and help attendees to improve both. We will identify what the happiest couples are doing, so you can apply your efforts to what will be most helpful. We will also discuss how the process of creating a great sex life will benefit your relationship overall—and vice versa. If your relationship is important to you, then your sex life should be, too—and so is this presentation.

Videos and Visioning: Restore Hope, Achieve Positivity, and Increase Motivation

Presenter: Dr.Billi Bittan

ADHD has a huge emotional impact on people of all ages. Often, people living with ADHD are labeled as lazy or unreliable and criticized for being different. When everyone, including yourself, is telling you that who you are is less than who you should be, your internal chatter can get loud and everything can seem confusing. This can lead to feeling disconnected and lost and leave you wondering if you’ll ever get back on track.
At times like these, it is important to anchor in strong emotional connections that remind you of who you are, your infinite potential, and help you create and live a happy and fulfilled life. But many times, words alone aren’t enough to help you find your way back.
When this happens, a strategy to use is a Memory for Visioning Board. Join Dr. Billi Bittan to get your creative juices flowing and learn how to easily make your own personalized Memory for Visioning Board. You’ll leave this session knowing exactly what to do and what to avoid. But this is more than a crafting session; this is a healing process. We will use this process to learn how to REFRAME and EMPOWER to deal with ADHD challenges and communication issues and achieve a positive mindset and inspiration.

Start Untangling ADHD

Presenter: Dana Rayburn

Learning to live easier with ADHD is like trying to untangle a giant knot of yarn. You need to unravel the mess one strand at a time.

Dana Rayburn sits down with us and talks about this idea of a strong ADHD foundation and three of her favorite game changing bricks she believes that foundation needs. Secrets that have shifted her and her clients from a life of ADHD frustration and failure to a life of ADHD Success.

Born this Way: Tapping Our Creative ADHD Nature to Heal Low Self-esteem

Presenter: Diane O’Reilly

Diane shares her passion for the healing and the transformative powers of Creativity. People with ADHD have an innate abundance of Creativity, or as Lady Gaga would say, “Baby, we were born this way”!

Diane shares how a large part of healing our low self-esteem, increasing our mental resilience and even improving our physical wellness can be achieved all by using our Creativity. She also discusses the surprising toxic consequences of ignoring this part of our nature.

Parenting Through the Hot Spots: Staying Cool During Transitions like Mornings, Homework and Getting off Technology

Presenters: Elaine Taylor-Klaus, PCC, CPCC, and Diane Dempster MHSA, PCC, CPC of ImpactADHD

There are times in family life when the temperature rises, but you want to keep things from reaching a boiling point! Gotta get kids out in the mornings, through homework, off technology, and into bed at night – without anyone losing their cool, right? In ADHD land, time and transitions are a challenge already. So, how — when you feel like you’ve tried everything — do you get yourself and kids through crunch times? Tune in for key strategies to turn off the heat when managing hot spots.

The Care and Feeding of Your ADHD Man

Presenter: Colleen Hicks, BScPharm

This discussion focuses on the unique relationship issues that arise when dating men with ADHD — especially when you’re a woman with ADHD. From the fun parts (you understand each other!) to the bad parts (your house is always a disaster), we’ll cover common topics and how they work in a marriage or dating context.

Basic ADHD Truths That Most Miss

Presenter: Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC

Are those with ADHD lazy? Unmotivated? Do they procrastinate for seemingly no reason? Is their mess one big pile of unorganized clutter? What’s the truth? What is real? What if they are as motivated as everyone else? What if there are legitimate reasons they procrastinate? What if they could find anything in their piles of clutter within seconds? What if what most we believe is true is actually inaccurate?

In this Succeed with ADHD Telesummit session, ADHD coach Jeff Copper will identify basic truths about ADHD that most miss on things such as motivation, procrastination, organization, and more. He’ll share insights on the truths he sees and how these truths can shift your mindset to better understand why what you are doing isn’t working and to enable you to more easily recognize what will work.

If you are drowning in a sea of strategies that are not or have not been working, join us for this insightful telesummit session in pursuit of the ADHD truth!

A Holistic Approach to Changing the Face of ADHD and Co-Existing Challenges

Presenter: Karen Ryan, NNCP, RHN of vancouverADHD

We all know that medication can play an important role in the life of someone struggling with either ADHD or a co-existing condition such as anxiety or depression, but what most people don’t know is that nutrient-dense food, proper supplements and an active lifestyle are just as important as well. Science has proven that what we put into our bodies plays a vital purpose in its outcome. Simply put, garbage in = garbage out! Guided by her committed background in both clinical and holistic nutrition and integrative mental health, Karen Ryan dispels the myths about what works, and what doesn’t work, in your everyday diet and lifestyle to help keep your mental health optimal.

Alcohol and ADHD

Presenter: Kate Bee, founder of The Sober School

Worried about your drinking? Thinking about taking a break from booze? Kate Bee is the founder of The Sober School, a website and coaching programme that helps women stop drinking and feel great about living life alcohol-free. She offers a frank discussion about the overall state of alcohol use in the world – why people are using and why it can be so hard to reduce or stop. Since many people with ADHD turn to alcohol to self-medicate their symptoms, Kate is here to offer her inspirational story, and assist you in developing an alcohol-free toolbox so you can develop other coping strategies in a way that honors you without shame or punishment.

What ADHD Parents (and Students) Need to Know Before Starting College in the Fall

Presenter: Lynn Miner-Rosen, M.Ed., ACC, CDCS

Making the move from High School to College can be a big transition for your son or daughter with (or without) ADHD and Executive Functioning deficits. It can also be a time of stress (and excitement) for you, the parent.

The Four Box Decluttering Method

Presenter: Rudy Rodriguez of ADHD Center for Success

Do you find yourself challenged, anxious and even overwhelmed by the thought of attempting to declutter your home or office? You are not alone in this matter.

Clutter generally begins with a small number of misplaced items strewn about here and there. “Oh, no big deal” you may think. However, after a while, the clutter increases in volume, and we stop seeing the growth of the misplaced items. It’s amazing how we can walk past or even step over our clutter without seeing it. Meanwhile, it generally continues to grow until we finally acknowledge the moderate or expansive volume of ‘stuff’ that has collected. This is when our feelings of overwhelm sets in and we feel paralysis, anxiety, a sense of powerlessness and lack of motivation.

The simple and practical Four Box Decluttering Method may be the answer. The Four Box Decluttering Method is a simple, effective and systematic strategy for decluttering most areas of your home or office.

How to Peacefully Transition Your Child Off Screens

Presenter: Samantha Moe, M.A. SLP

Why does turning off screens have to be such a fight? Children with ADHD often develop a dependence on electronics and argue to get as much time as possible. If you find yourself arguing or bribing just to get them to complete everyday tasks like getting out the door or eating dinner with the family, you need a better plan. Learn why screens are such a big deal to kids and an effective plan that limits screen time without a fight.

Tired of Shame and Blame? Stop Feeling 'Less Than' and Start Sharing Your Fabulousness

Presenter: Dr. Sharon Saline

Living in a world that’s increasingly unpredictable, people are more anxious than ever before. For kids and adults with ADHD, worry and fear can increase their agitation, distractedness and impulsivity and make things seems worse than they are. Dr. Sharon Saline, author of What your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids in School and Life, discusses how anxiety works and what you can do differently to reduce your worries.

After reviewing the physiology and psychology of anxiety, Dr. Saline will show you how to change your relationship to worry and avoid the pitfalls of negative thinking. Instead of avoidance, rationalization or reassurance, you will learn techniques for separating the person from the anxiety, talking to the worry itself and creating effective responses to ‘what ifs’. Dr. Saline also explores issues such as insomnia, social concerns and work/school performance and shares examples from kids and adults with ADHD who also struggle with anxiety. She offers tools for teaching both adults and kids how to realistically evaluate situations, tolerate uncertainty and calm down. With these skills in hand, people move forward with more confidence and much less worry.

Manage Your ADHD Mind: A Natural Approach for Women

Presenter: Shaun Roney, ADHD and Life Coach

Are you a woman who is not officially diagnosed, or who was diagnosed later in life? Do you have what Shaun lovingly refers to as high functioning ADHD or ADHD tendencies? If so, this one’s for you!

Leaving your mind unmanaged is like leaving a toddler alone with a set of knives, or worse yet, a box of Sharpies! Both can do some serious damage.

When we take the time to observe our thoughts and notice what’s going on in our brains without judgment, we allow ourselves to see how what we’re thinking plays a large part in what we’re doing.
Using a tool called The Model, Shaun will break down step by step how to notice all of those thoughts swimming around in your mind, how to then unravel and make sense of them, and finally how to flip them upside down to get the results that you’re after in life.
