Message from the Editor: How to Keep Your Head, Even When It’s Spinning

Regardless what the calendar says, it feels like summer is winding down and it’s time to get busy. While we’re trying to squeeze out the last few drops of summery goodness, our thoughts turn (should I say “spin!?”) to getting organized for back-to-school and back-to-work.

No other time of the year is more fraught with disorienting changes in routine and transitions, both of which present special challenges for the ADHD brain. Sometimes it seems we may simply succumb to the feeling of overwhelm that results of having too much to do, too little time and too many demands pulling us in every direction.

In this issue, we’ve got articles that will help you transition gently into new routines, get organized and even keep a healthy mind and body while you’re doing it.


Believe in yourself,


Michelle Frank, Psy.D.
