For Adults with AD/HD

Late, Lost, and Unprepared

Is It You, Me, or Adult A.D.D.? Stopping the Roller Coaster When Someone You Love Has Attention Deficit Disorder


by Gina Pera


As a journalist, longtime ADHD advocate, and spouse of an adult with ADHD, Gina says she wrote the book she wish she'd had ten years ago, when she and her husband first learned that he has ADHD. In addition to explaining the basics and nuances of adult ADHD, especially as it affects couples, the book also serves as a consumer guide to finding effective ADHD treatment strategies.

"This book is sure to become the authoritative guide for couples dealing with ADHD and the baggage that accompanies it," says Patricia Quinn, MD. "Packed with information, but not overwhelming, it is a unique and valuable resource."

Confronting Your Clutter

By Carolyn Koehnline, MA, LMHC


All kinds of people struggle with clutter - the excess baggage that drains our energy, gets in our way, distracts us from what’s important, and has no real place in our lives. The focusing challenges of ADD just exacerbate the problem. This book facilitates the release of clutter from your home, head, heart and schedule. It is especially helpful for those who don’t know how to get started or who are feeling resistant to being given a list of “shoulds.”

Carolyn Koehnline, mental health counselor, clutter specialist, and journal instructor brings a practical, compassionate and creative approach to the topic. Brief poems and essays and simple writing exercises are designed to gently decrease shame and resistance and increase inspiration and clarity. Wherever you are in the process of de-cluttering, Confronting Your Clutter is about finding a way of addressing it that is uniquely yours.

Sections include:

  • Taking a closer look at clutter
  • Preparing for change
  • Gathering support
  • Getting out of your own way
  • Learning to let go
  • Finding new ways to navigate time

The Disorganized Mind: Coaching Your AD/HD Brain to Take Control of Your Time, Tasks, and Talents

by Nancy Ratey


Here is a life coach in book form to help you overcome the inattention, disorganization, and impulsivity that gets in the way of their getting things done. What follows is both a practical guide to taking control of the symptoms with which individuals with ADHD struggle, and an inspirational summons to believe with the author that living a rich and balanced life -- "a life you love" -- is possible. By providing anecdotes from real life, and by citing strategies that she and her clients have devised to cope with their ADHD, Ms. Ratey demonstrates how readers can compensate for the specific attention inconsistencies their ADHD brains manifest, and reduce or eliminate the burdens they, and consequently their families, so often bear. There's no magic, she insists. But there is choice. The book makes a compelling case for choosing Nancy Ratey's coaching techniques as the first step of the life-changing journey ahead.

Plan for Success
by Joyce Kubik, AD/HD Coach & Skills Trainer

How is Plan For Success program on CD different? First, it is a planning-journal that has the following elements: a clean design without the clutter of pithy sayings or all the little things placed on the page to draw our attention away from planning, weekly project-planning worksheets, and journal pages to use for meetings or class notes, or simply to write your fleeting thoughts. You'll also find a small parking lot to drop those ideas that pop into your head at inopportune times, and three monthly overviews at a time. But the most valuable part of the Plan For Success program is a time-scheduling page where you realistically plan the days events.
Print out as many pages that you want manage at one time and save... save... save... because there is no need to buy a new planner every year.
