Have you or a loved one been recently diagnosed with ADHD? Perhaps you're recognizing yourself in ADHD tests and checklists?
Getting diagnosed in adulthood can be a shock. It's a life-changing moment. But, ultimately, an ADHD diagnosis is a good thing. Much better to know what's going on than to continue to believe you're weird, flaky, lazy, unreliable, or stupid. Finally, you have an explanation that you can work with.
To help you do just that, we've put together a package of videos to explain what ADHD is, and what it is not—and give you invaluable advice on dealing with the emotions you'll experience, and the negative responses you may encounter from others. It contains everything we wish we'd known when we were first diagnosed. And more.
Our Starter Kit is an incredible bargain. Dozens of top experts. Practical advice. ADHD-friendly tools and strategies to master your mindset. Packaged with our award-winning blend of humor, science, and hope. For less than the cost of one doctor's visit!
Your Personal ADHD Starter Kit includes the following videos:
ADD & Loving it?! has been called “the best film ever made on ADHD.” Okay, we called it that, but thousands agree! Originally aired on Global Television in Canada and PBS in the US, this award-winning documentary is changing lives.

With a unique blend of science, humour, and hope, ADD & Loving it?! cuts through the stigma of a syndrome that we thought we knew, and shows us that we are not alone!

You have your diagnosis. You’re learning a lot, discovering powerful strategies, and everything is changing. You’re excited and want to share with people. But who you tell and what you tell them requires planning, forethought, restraint, and patience. And if you had those traits, you wouldn’t have ADHD!
To Tell Or Not To Tell is a must-see video that explores the vital issue of how to disclose your ADHD. There is a right way to do it, and a dozen wrong ways. And once it’s done, it’s done.
In a survey of ADHD coaching clients who disclosed their diagnoses, “About 50% got the accommodations and help that they needed. The other 50% either lost their jobs, got demoted, or were passed over for promotions.” To Tell Or Not To Tell gives you the power to beat the odds!
“This is one I'll recommend to my clients who still question what they should do.” -L
