      This is an exceptional in-a-nutshell-talk. Are you planning to make this available for all on YOUTUBE? It would be a great teaching tool for educators, therapists, families and those with ADHD. Thank you for the knowledge and support you share with all of us who are impacted by ADHD.

      Thanks for the talk focused on six categories and the comment above. As an adult with ADHD, I think of having TEAM issues: Time, Energy, and Attention Management issues. Random thoughts—
      Implications for well-being and quality of life come to mind. Perhaps the neuroscience could be explored in a longer presentation:
      Communication skills, interpersonal effectiveness, taking time for connection, listening, …
      Ability to relax/go with/develop a meditation practice or other routines for well-being, both in solitude and with others,and in nature. These include mindfulness, prayer, worship/attending services, and reflecting on teachings as in bible study or works from other traditions.

      The intention to be anchored in kindness, to be in, or return to, a kind state of mind, has improved the quality of my life. When we cultivate a kind mind, open heart, and joyful, vibrant, resilient spirit, we can contribute to our own well-being and the greater good. When we draw on the synchronicity between becoming kind-minded and practicing mindfulness, we can advance human evolution. When we pledge, I commit to kindness. We commit to kindness., change happens.

      Good chat. I think you missed two important aspects of ADHD that should be added to your six categories:Sensory issues and anxiety.
      In addition you briefly said something about time but did not mention how time moves totally different for people with ADHD. For example, something that happened yesterday could have happened two or three days ago. Something that happened a week ago could have happened a month ago.
      I have every issue in every category and life is hell.
