Why Your ADHD Brain is a GIFT!

Our entire platform runs on helping students overcome the challenges and limitations they may be experiencing in their day-to-day lives at home, at school, and in life due to their ADHD. We know the ADHD brain works differently, which is why we preach the power of ADHD coaching to individuals who are looking for support. But while it’s easy to get caught up in the “deficits” of the ADHD brain, it’s essential to recognize that these “deficits” aren’t really deficits at all.


They’re differences.


The ADHD brain possesses unique strengths and abilities that should be celebrated! Embracing these differences can not only help a child with ADHD feel validated, confident, and supported, but it can also help parents and caregivers of children with ADHD feel hopeful and even excited at the gifts their child has BECAUSE OF their ADHD. Embracing these gifts can also lead to a better overall understanding of neurodiversity and promote a more inclusive society.



Rather than focusing solely on the challenges, we are all about embracing the strengths of the ADHD mind, while simultaneously offering support for areas of struggle. By promoting neurodiversity and recognizing the unique talents of every individual, we can foster an environment where everyone's abilities are valued, appreciated, and celebrated!


Dr. Christine Borst, a Ph.D. therapist, coach, entrepreneur, and fellow ADHD alumn, had this to say:



"The ADHD brain is such an expansive thing. I think there's so much beauty in the ability to just naturally see outside the box, and do things outside the norm. There's such a sense of creativity and, when we cultivate it in healthy ways, we (people with ADHD) have such freedom to see and reinvent things in ways others could not. When we see the ADHD brain as a gift, as opposed to a burden, we are limitless."
