ADHD & Me - A printable, colourable workbook to help teens get to know and love their brains.

Welcome to "ADHD & Me" – a comprehensive and engaging workbook tailored specifically for teens and young people navigating life with ADHD. This printable, colourable resource is designed to be a supportive tool on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment and acceptance. With 40 thoughtfully crafted activities, "ADHD & Me" helps young people to further their understanding of ADHD, explore their own qualities and strengths, and develop practical strategies for managing life's challenges.

Exploration and Discovery:

Through activities like "Unlock Your ADHD" and "The ADHD Executive Functioning Wheel," teens can gain insight into how their brains work, uncovering unique traits and characteristics associated with ADHD. By understanding their ADHD profile, teens are better equipped to navigate the complexities of daily life.

Management Tools and Strategies:

"ADHD & Me" equips teens with practical tools and strategies to effectively manage ADHD-related challenges. From academic success to maintaining healthy relationships, each activity offers valuable insights and actionable steps for navigating common ADHD-related obstacles. Teens explore topics such as stress management, organisation techniques, sleep hygiene, and more, empowering them to thrive in all aspects of their lives.

Mindfulness and Self-Reflection:

Throughout the workbook, teens are encouraged to engage in mindfulness practises and self-reflection, as we break down the journal into workable chunks. Our "Stop and Check-In" prompts serve as gentle reminders for teens to pause, breathe, and evaluate their progress.

Celebrating Strengths and Achievements:

"ADHD & Me" celebrates the unique strengths and qualities that individuals with ADHD possess. Through activities like "Famous People with ADHD" and our Reward Sheet teens are encouraged to embrace their individuality and view ADHD as a source of creativity, resilience, and innovation. By reframing perceptions of ADHD, teens cultivate a positive self-image and learn to harness their strengths to achieve their goals.

Empowerment and Self-Acceptance:

Above all, "ADHD & Me" serves as a beacon of empowerment and self-acceptance for teens navigating the challenges of ADHD. By engaging in meaningful exploration, developing practical skills, and celebrating their unique selves, young people gain confidence and agency in managing their ADHD. "ADHD & Me" encourages teens to embrace their unique neurodiversity and teaches them how to survive in a neurotypical world.
