Have you just been diagnosed as AD(H)D? 

Feeling a bit raw in your feelings? Confused, bewildered, surprised? Or simply seeking more information about this "new you"?

Then you've come to the right place!

Forge a strong identity as a neurodivergent person in this mini course designed specifically AD(H)Ders. Explore neurodiversity, diagnosis, your strengths, find connection in your tribe and learn how to embrace your uniqueness. 

This is a mini course that will take you about 10 hours to complete, should you engage with all the materials fully.

3 Chapters of foundational knowledge on ADHD, including diagnostics, finding others like you, and self love. Written by an ADHDer!

What You Will Learn

Chapter 1 is "Understanding your Diagnosis"where we look at your diagnosis, explaining what ADD and ADHD is, the advantages and disadvantages of being ADHD and we have two activities to help you understand yourself as "ADHD".

Chapter 2 is "ADHD Friends and Your Tribe" and we explore the importance and way to make connections with other ADHD people, and some of the challenges of being ADHD and a person of colour (an area which is rarely discussed, but very important!).

Chapter 3 is called "Living Your Authentic ADHD Life" and this chapter looks at self love, overcoming the stigma, and gaining confidence to live your life as a (proud) ADHD person.

Finally, we end with "Resources", where we offer a list of helpful organizations that may provide you support, social connection and more information about ADD and ADHD.  You will see we have added in some ideas for those living in Australia, Canada, UK and USA.  

We hope "Newly Diagnosed: ADHD" is valuable for you!
