The purpose of ADDA virtual peer support is to provide support to ADDA members who are adults with ADHD in a safe, non-judgmental environment. This is a forum for mutual acceptance, understanding, and self-discovery with peers.

Participants are encouraged to share their experiences, strengths, and hopes. This group is open to all ADDA+ members we especially invite those who are new to ADDA, new to support groups, or newly diagnosed. You don’t have to figure out ADHD on your own. You can talk to people just like you.

Do you have trouble with procrastination? Losing your keys? Forgetting? So do we.

Between meetings, members of our ADHD online support groups 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.

As a matter of respect, please follow the guidelines of the group’s norms when joining. Follow the age, gender, sexual orientation, race, cultural, and content guidelines.

Connect with people like you. People who get ADHD. Thrive. Share knowledge. Swap stories. Lift each other up.

At ADDA+, you’ll find everything you need to improve life with ADHD in so many ways. Come on in… to ADDA+.

 

Group Leader Information

Renee Crook – Bio

  • Renee Crook, AAC

    Founder and Principal of ADDed Perspective Coaching, Renee is an ADHD Coach and ADHD Consultant currently working primarily with adults. Renee’s diagnosis, ADHD: Primarily Inattentive Type, in her late 30s, has kept her connected and drawn to those with a similar experience. An adult diagnosis often comes with a complicated and challenging path of relief, but also grief, regrets, “what-ifs” along with a lot of patterns and habits. Working through that maze can be daunting, lonely, painful and exhausting. She discovered there are ways it can be easier.

    Her passions are fed through helping others discover how that can be created for them through her work as an ADHD Coach, Consultant, Tutor and volunteer Facilitator for ADDA’s Adult Beginners ADHD Virtual Support Group and an in-person ADHD Parent Support Group in Bellevue, Washington.

    One of her previous lives included 13 years as an Elementary Educator during which, thousands of hours of training and research in learning challenges with specific focus on ADHD was a pivotal point in leading her to her own evaluation and diagnosis.

    In her next life, after Elementary Education, Renee fell into the world of Residential Property Management. Although proud of her accomplishments, new skills & ever increasing responsibilities, after 4 years, she decided the company and work she was doing was making her very unhappy leading to the decision to start her own private tutoring business.

    As a tutor, wanting to serve her students & their families well, she sought out further training, choosing ADD Coach Academy (ADDCA). While in ADDCA’s Personal Transformations course, she discovered a talent for coaching and began to explore that path more intentionally, finally deciding coaching was really where she was supposed to be. She has truly found her passion and is deeply excited to continue to grow her coaching practice, consulting and speaking engagements educating about ADHD and ADHD coaching.

  • Mason Proulx – Bio

  • Mason is graphic designer and father to two lovably neurodivergent kids, hailing from Canada’s capital, Ottawa. He joined ADDA in March 2022, yearning to connect to a larger community where he didn’t feel the constant pressure to hide his quirks. Here he found a place to learn, grow and to give back some of the kindness that was shown to him.

    Diagnosed at age 43 after a lifetime of searching to understand why no matter what he achieved, he still felt so disconnected to the world. It took a friend being publicly vocal about her challenges with ADHD for him to realize what it actually meant. He identified intensely with everything he came to learn about the disorder, and was baffled that no therapist, teacher or loved one had ever suggested it before.

    Through this experience, Mason became a proponent of self-advocacy, empathy and encouraging open dialogue about our struggles, because you never know who might need to hear it.

    He is admittedly new to volunteering, but is passionate about fostering a world where people feel heard and accepted.
