People with above-average intelligence are more difficult to diagnose with ADHD. As if being recognized as bright isn’t enough pressure to succeed, having a high IQ and ADHD can cause us to blame ourselves in unhealthy ways, causing further isolation.

So what do we need to succeed in the neurotypical world? Finding community support is the first step to improving daily life. Having a safe space to discuss and process our ADHD lives is what this group is all about.

We’ll provide trustworthy information, empathy, and friendship. If you have problems with procrastination, perfectionism, and time blindness, let’s share strategies and learn from each other.

Join us as we share our experiences, explore our strengths, and draw inspiration from each other.

At ADDA+, we get ADHD because we’ve got ADHD. Join us! It’s all virtual… so you can bring your coffee! We share knowledge. We swap stories. We learn together. We level up. You’ll find everything you need to improve your life with ADHD in so many ways. Come home… to  ADDA+.

Between meetings, members of this group may choose to stay in touch through their own reserved “space” in ADDA Social. ADDA Social is a private, ADDA members-only social media platform. As part of the process for joining this group, you’ll be invited to their ADDA Social space. However, participation is not obligatory.

Khadija Al-Yousifi – BIO

  • Khadija Al-Yousifi

    Hello ADDA community! I am a multimedia visual artist and dancer living in Toronto, with an honours degree in psychology, and a diploma in hairstyling; and I am comforted to suspect that this mix-and-match range of interests is sure to sound familiar to whoever’s reading this.

    Much like many others with ADHD, I sought and received a diagnosis in 2021 after the global pandemic removed all external structure, and it became clear to me that being chronically overwhelmed and ‘Trying Again Tomorrow™’ weren’t working.
    I joined ADDA support groups shortly after my diagnosis and very quickly realized what community felt like for the first time in my life. (There was a lot of crying.) Since joining ADDA and working with an ADHD coach, I have regained a sense of control over my life—and at the same time—a sense of freedom that I’d never had before.

    It is humbling to feel that I have been supported enough that I am now able to support others, and it is an honour to facilitate some of the very groups that I began attending. I truly wish for nothing more than for others to find the hope and comfort that I have found and continue to discover on this ADHD journey.
