What is ADHD?
ADHD is a neurobiological disorder that affects people of all ages; people with ADHD have particular challenge with impulsivity, hyperactivity, and/or the ability to pay attention (distractibility).
Historically, it was believed that ADHD existed only during childhood and that most would outgrown their ADHD by adulthood.
We now know that this is not true.
Who has ADHD?
Currently, it is estimated that 1 in 20 adults (and 8% of college/university students) have ADHD, however, only 15% of these adults have been formally diagnosed and are receiving treatment. This means that 85% OF ADULTS WITH ADHD ARE UNAWARE OF THEIR ADHD AND REMAIN UNDIAGNOSED… This also means that 85% of adults with ADHD are not receiving the support/treatment needed to move forward with a more balanced and productive life.
But, it doesn't have to be this way...Tammy is committed to educating anyone who will listen about ADHD and its impact. As a respected professional within the field, Tammy has a wealth of relevant training (M.A. in Psychology as well as doctoral level training in Clinical Psychology) and professional experience (Learning Disability Specialist, Psychometrist, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist). Several years ago, after becoming acutely aware of how limited resources are for those impacted by ADHD (particularly adults with ADHD) Tammy chose to amalgamate her skills and interests to better serve the adolescents/young adults with ADHD with whom she worked and became trained as an ADHD Coach. Tammy has been transforming the lives of those impacted by ADHD ever since.
