The Best ADHD Blogs

Many people mistake attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as a mental health disorder that only affects children. Not true. The condition actually affects many adults, too.

These blogs are great starting points whether you’re raising or supporting a child or teenager with ADHD, or you’re an adult who has ADHD. They’re packed full of information, personal stories, life hacks, and actionable tips for ADHD.

Totally ADD

Rick Green founded Totally ADD to tackle the shame and stigma of living with ADHD by sharing personal stories of people living with it. Totally ADD tackles common myths about ADHD, how ADHD affects relationships, and procrastination.

ADD Consults

Women with ADHD often face barriers, especially if they have kids with ADHD. Terry Matlen knows this firsthand. That’s why she started the ADD Consults blog. She has ADHD and she’s also the mom to an adult with it. Terry wrote a book and founded the online space “Queen of Distractions,” to offer group coaching to help women with ADHD get organized, declutter, and connect. On the blog, she covers reframing ADHD in positive ways, educational resources, and invites readers to ask her anything about ADHD.

Author and ADHD coach Jacqueline Sinfield writes about how adults can manage their ADHD in everyday life, from making sense of a new diagnosis to tips and tricks to use when tasks feel overwhelming.
