TOPICS in the "Thrive with ADD" audio workshop
The 74-minute “Thrive with ADD” Audio Workshop is designed for both entertaining listening and self-study. It is presented with the understanding that every ADD – AD/HD adult is unique, and will require their own set of strategies that work with their ADD traits and tendencies.
After each topic, a series of thought questions are posed for you to answer about yourself. These will help you start to create your own best strategies for areas that are challenging to you.
