When Reset ADHD’s founder, Alex Hey (pronounced “hi”), was a child, he was fond of playing his family’s N64. Unfortunately, he was not as good at it as he would have liked. There were many occasions where defeat seemed imminent. Rather than accept defeat, Alex preferred to hit the reset button and start the whole game over. This is the strategy he brings to managing his own ADHD. Rather than admit defeat, he prefers to hit the reset button and start fresh.
Alex was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 20. This diagnosis explained two decades of underachievement and feeling misunderstood. In the wake of his diagnosis, he began a casual study of ADHD which, over the years, turned into a passion for learning about ADHD and finding all strategies that might help manage the symptoms of this frustrating condition. While writing a book on ADHD, he had the opportunity to support one of his friends who was being tested for ADHD. These two experiences helped him discover a passion for helping those with ADHD. This led him to pursue a career as an ADHD coach.
