    446 | August 2022 Live Q&A with the ADHD reWired Podcast Team + ADHD reWired Coaches!

    Join the ADHD reWired Team every second Tuesday of the month for our monthly Live Q&A!   You’ll hear strategies for communicating the challenges of ADHD to partners and families, ways to discuss invisible disabilities and other mental health challenges with others, resources for folks who don’t have access to healthcare, and three assumptions that can help reframe how we are in our relationships. Then, you’ll hear techniques about learning and retaining information, ways that parents can help an adult child who is transitioning from graduating college to moving out into the world, and the importance of encouragement.  The panelists also talk about imposter syndrome, compassionate ass-kicking, that failure is not terminal, and how to support someone to get started on something tough.  Finally, you will hear the gold standard of diagnoses, comorbidities, and the importance of not getting wrapped up in a diagnosis. Some of the Questions & Topics in this Episode: How do I help my spouse learn about ADHD?  He is skeptical of the condition.  Could ADHD coaching be helpful for couples where one person has ADHD, and the other is neurotypical?  In the scenario where you come from a background where the concept of mental illness or ADHD is not necessarily “accepted”, how do you explain the guardrails or things that may be helpful for a child with ADHD to those who think, “Everyone is a little bit ADHD”?  People I know don’t have access to healthcare, medical support, or therapy.  But, I don’t know what to tell them when they’re struggling and don’t have access to the above.  Do you have any advice?  What can I do to manage my ADHD symptoms when I don’t have access to healthcare?  Do you have any tips, tricks, tools or techniques so I can actually retain information so that I’m learning it? It’s already stuff I know, but I feel like I am just reviewing stuff and I don’t actually get anywhere. As a mother of a recent college graduate who does not want to treat his ADHD, he doesn’t want help from us and is overwhelmed about his future, and it’s hard to sit back and not do anything for him.   I have been treated for ADHD since I found out 20 years ago, but now, neuro health says I have no ADHD and “1000% aspergers.”  I am confused and immobilized.  Resources & Honorable Mentions: Quote: “Everyone is doing the best they can, everyone has good intentions, and everyone wants to do well and please the people around them.” - Podcast: on ADHD Essentials with Brendan Mahan YouTube: with Jessica McCabe   YouTube Playlist:   Website: Website: - Children and Adults with ADHD Website: - Centre for ADHD Awareness, Canada Bonus:  Last month, a listener asked if there were grants available to cover potential business expenses, specifically for ADHD.  Here are some resources they shared (Thank you Lili!)   Check out the Other Podcasts on the ADHD reWired Podcast Network: with Brendan Mahan with Will Curb with MJ Siemens

Chriswangstal ,

A must-listen for anyone with ADHD

As someone recently diagnosed with ADHD, the ADHD rewired podcasts have been a saviour. Whether it’s about identity, skills, emotions, or resources, Eric has a solve… and if not a solve, at least a “I hear you + see you”.

I’m always excited for the weekly drops. Keep it up!!

Hardestworkindame ,

Real and relatable

Just listened to the episode with Stephanie Antoine. I love the transparency of experts who are willing to share their personal journey. That’s what I love about ADHD coaches, and especially this podcast. They walk their talk. They’ve had to. So inspiring!

Angecan ,

One of the more helpful ADHD podcasts

Grab a notebook and pen because you’ll want to jot down the insights and strategies. A long-running pod that found its stride a long time ago.
