Living Library - Queen of Chaos, Mistress of Mayhem: The Persistent Challenge of Wraganing an ADHD Brain
1:30 PM 60 min

2022

The Living Library creates a safe space for dialogue and to increase our understanding of others’ perspectives and experiences including those affected by stigma and prejudice. The event features people with diverse backgrounds or unique life experiences sharing their stories with a small group of Listeners. Spending time with a Speaker enables Listeners to learn more deeply about the Speaker's experience of culture, spirituality, disability, identity, gender—whatever the case may be. 

I am a neurodiverse person, who along with both of my children live with ADHD. ADHD is a widely (and wildly) misunderstood disability, and all too often, those who have ADHD are dismissed as being unmotivated, disorganized, and erratic. Managing this disability within the education system, and as an educator in a realm where student disability is accounted for but instructor disability is unexpected, at best, is challenging. I would love to be able to share my story as a way to generate better understanding and awareness of what ADHD actually is, and how it might be better approached in the workplace and education system.
