ADHD is Me-      

I always knew I was different.  

I needed excitement, change, and stimulation.  

I was drawn to those who were different, thought out of the box, and who sought help. 

I readily pursued a career in special education with a passion for helping others.


I spent hours on homework, trying to please.  

Frequently was off in a different world, on a different track.  

I always seemed to take on more than was possible to accomplish, and expected perfection.  

Often frustrated, I sought new and different ways to problem solve.  

I found the world of game design, and used it as a unique avenue of teaching.


My career went from classroom to clinic, always trying to find a new solution. 

Then, I moved to running an evaluation center, to directing a school for children with special needs.  

Now in retirement, my motor is still running as I reach out to those of you who may want to benefit from this long life of finding survival strategies.

I’m here for you, if you need me.
