Attention, Interest & Importance in ADHD

Oddly, ADHD's inability to control attention - to focus - can manifest itself in a rapid switching from one distraction to another; or, conversely, one’s attention may be locked onto one thing so completely that it seems nothing short of an explosion will get their attention. Sadly misinterpreted, this single symptomatic outcome of ADHD is responsible for ruining relationships, crashing careers, and stealing college degrees.

The following PODCAST about this phenomenon will help those with or without ADHD understand:

  • How interests can help ADHD individuals focus, complete tasks, and excel;
  • Why ADHD individuals may not pay attention to important people and situations; and
  • Why it is critical to plan ahead for those times when the ADHD individual seems “unavailable" to interact with other people.
