A note from Laurie Dupar, your host...
Hi, Laurie Dupar here from CoachingforADHD.com and trust me when I say that I have been there! When my son was diagnosed with ADHD over 14 years ago, I didn’t know where to turn. Then I found ADHD Coaching and a community of support. Now, over a decade later, I am combining my experiece as a Nurse Practitioner with my passion for increasing the awareness of ADHD and coaching people to lead successful lives. And my son, now 23, is proudly finishing his final deploy in our United States Navy and plans to attend college next fall pursuing a career in healthcare!
I can definitely say the key to my son’s success was the sharing of ideas and strategies that were essential to learning how to live with ADHD. We definitely could not have done it on our own! So, for the fifth year in a row, I am once again hosting the Succeed with ADHD Telesummit and I have invited some amazing colleagues to share their wealth of experience and ADHD wisdom with you.
I want to thank the speakers for generously giving their time and our community of sponsors who make this possible. Together they provide an incredible diversity of resources and I hope you will take the time to get to know them.

Getting Unstuck: The Magic of Smart Self-Analysis
Getting Unstuck: The Magic of Smart Self-Analysis offers an enlightening examination of the ways we get stuck, procrastinate or otherwise get locked out of productive choices…and provides disarmingly simple ways to unlock the door to right action, and to get UN-stuck.
Alan Brown, ADHD and productivity coach and creator of the award-winning ADD Crusher™ multi-media program for teens and adults, will give you a better understanding of inertia, irrational fear and impulsive “escapes” from what needs doing. Importantly, he will give you a powerful set of questions to pose when stuck or fearful, the answers to which we all hold within. He’ll then show how the answering of these questions frees us to begin and carry out intimidating tasks or projects.
Alan has gained a reputation for developing and sharing what are referred to as “brain hacks” or “mind hacks” – an emerging body of techniques that can increase one’s productivity and significantly improve day-to-day quality of life for individuals. As with all of Alan’s presentations, this is learn-it-today-do-it-tomorrow material, taught in a fun, interactive way that will be of value to ADHD teens, adults and even parents of a ADHD adolescents or young adults.
When It Is More Than ADHD
Research shows that up to 30% of children with ADHD may also be on the Autism Spectrum. Diagnosing both disorders can prove challenging, since both are developmental disorders that affect children in the areas of communication, social interaction, and behavior. Because of these similar features, this dual-diagnosis often goes undiagnosed and therefore untreated, which can lead to greater challenges for children and families. Studies tell us that children with this dual-diagnosis are at a greater risk for harmful or risky behaviors such as cutting and suicide. Therefore, it is imperative that practitioners understand the subtle nuances that indicate when a dual-diagnosis of ADHD and Autism is present in clients. The point is that ADHD treatment alone is not enough when there is a dual-diagnosis – ADHD and Autism must be treated together. In this presentation, participants will learn:
- What to look for to identify the possibility of Autism disorder with ADHD clients
- When and how to advise families to seek out this additional diagnosis
- Ways to integrate treatment for Autism characteristics in your ADHD coaching
- How to define successful treatment of the dual-diagnosis
It’s 10:00PM: Have You Done Your Homework Yet?- Tips, Tools and Techniques for Teaching Your Teen Time Management
Do you have a teenager who is a ‘last minute Lucy’ or ‘always late Alex?’ Leslie Josel, author of “What’s the Deal with Teens and Time Management,” will share her secret sauce to get your teenager on the road to developing a time sense, "future awareness" and time management strategies. Parents, you will learn how to teach your teen to become proficient at time and project management and manage their daily schedules using planners and technology. She will also discuss specific time management tools and techniques specifically geared to teens (which are helpful no matter what age you are).
- Learn how to help your teen create a “Personal Homework Profile” to better understand the best practices for your student to tackle homework.
- Discover how to pick an appropriate paper or electronic academic planner and how to properly plan time.
Why Your Kid with ADHD Should (or Should Not) Play Video Games
Kids with ADHD learn from video games. Dozens of studies describe how video games can improve certain executive functioning skills — including attention, cognitive flexibility, planning, and self-control as well as academic learning. Research also shows how kids with ADHD learn better from technology than they do in a traditional classroom. In fact some studies suggest greater improvements in reading and math when these skills are exercised through video games as opposed to traditional methods of teaching.
Video games also can improve social skills in children with ADHD. Video games are no longer the mostly-single player games of the 1980s and 90s. Current studies suggest that 70% of game play now involves other players — playing with or against them, locally or online, and, increasingly, spectating.
Parents and educators have observed how kids with ADHD love playing with video games and technology. While playing they are more attentive, display persistence and determination, and often seem happier than while engaged in other activities. While it is crucial that kids with ADHD play outside, exercise regularly and engage in hands on activities that capture their attention, it also make sense to get the most out of their digital play. This presentation will help you to understand the role of technology in the lives of kids with ADHD, how to optimize the benefits of digital media, and how to set limits on game and social media play.
- Learn how to find the best video games for kids with ADHD
- Understand why kids with ADHD love video games
- Finally know the answer to is Minecraft good for kids with ADHD?
- Learn 3 unbeatable strategies for limiting video game play
- Discover how technology can help kids with ADHD at school

Time Management for Unmanageable People
People who are chronically disorganized or ADHD frequently report feelings of stress, frustration, overwhelm and anxiety from having so much to do. They often feel busy, but not productive. Effective time and organizational management is essential if you are to manage a busy workload at home or office without excessive stress.

Adoption and ADHD: Three Keys to Calming the Storm
Adoptive parents can tell you that ADHD and trauma reactions can look a lot a like. This can leave adoptive families unsure where to turn for the help they need. Jared and DeAnn Jennette have experienced this in their home and in working with families with adopted and ADHD children. In this session, you will learn to:
- Ask the question: How do trauma and ADHD relate?
- Understand empathy as the key to helping a child heal
- Change the lens through which we view our role as parents
- Utilize techniques to keep yourself calm when your child is melting down
ADHD, Relationships, and Sex: Way Too Important to Ignore
Couples, where one person has ADHD and one doesn’t, often have an overabundance of mundane matters of daily life to argue about, making the value of good sexual connection that much more important. The process of creating a better sex life sometimes involves discussing what you do in bed, but mostly involves working on what happens outside of bed. This process makes for a better relationship overall. In this session, we will discuss:
- The many ways that ADHD impacts a couple’s sex life
- How to overcome ADHD-specific obstacles to a better sex life (and all those other obstacles that every other couple wrestles with)
- Trade secret: Why creating a better sex life makes you into a better person
Creative? Yes! Productive? No.
A number of studies are confirming what people with ADHD have claimed for years: We are more creative.
So, if we are more creative, on average, the question arises, why aren’t we pouring out brilliant creative works in endless abundance? What prevents ADHD folks from using our ability to generate fabulous ideas to produce award-winning, world-changing, incredibly profitable results? Why do so many of your exciting ideas simply die on the vine, fizzling out, never amounting to anything more than a disappointing flash in the pan?
While some people may fear that understanding how their creativity works will ‘kill the magic’, comedian Rick Green suggests that knowing what’s going on allows you to take charge of your creativity. It is possible to turn it on when you need it. In this presentation, Rick will creatively cover:
- What is creativity? Bust the myth that only artists and writers make their living with their creativity.
- Three steps to generating breakthrough ideas.
- The importance of structure — The advantage of a creative space, dedicated time, and a process that works for you.
- 7 ways to overcome being 'blocked’.
- Two insidious creativity killers--Perfectionism and Fear of Failure-- with simple mental shifts that allow you to quickly move forward.
Managing the Stress of Life Transitions
In his seminal book, Transitions: Making Sense of Life’s Changes, William Bridges provides insight into transitions. He points out that the “ending then beginning” phases in life can be challenging but encourages us to move forward, looking at a map, to see more clearly what lies ahead. Life transitions can be both energizing and stress-filled, especially for individuals with ADHD who are overworked, overwhelmed and disorganized. Coaches often act as the compass or the map, guiding clients forward with a better sense of what’s next. Adults with ADHD or those supporting loved ones with ADHD will learn how to handle tough transitions including downsizing, starting a family, going through a divorce, experiencing empty nest syndrome or providing care to aging relatives. These transitions are stressful and require good self-care and support.
In this presentation, Jodi Sleeper-Triplett will provide strategies and tools to help you and your loved ones manage the stress of life transitions. You will learn how to:
- Shift your questions and use “Noticing”
- Practice self-care and deflect others’ stress away from yourself
- Identify when executive functioning and ADHD issues are, and are not, impacting progress
- Increase structure and tap into core values
- Create a picture for the future
10 Simple Rules for ADHD-Friendly Organization!
When we speak of someone who is “organized,” we’re often describing how they exude an overall sense that they “have it together" and they’re on top of things. Isn’t that the bigger picture kind of organization most of us want more of in our lives? But many of us know all too well that it’s impossible to “have it together” if you can’t find where you put it! Physical organization is a really crucial part of that bigger picture kind of organization. We need to have and maintain a sense of order and logic in our physical surroundings, in order to be able to function effectively and with less stress. Without physical organization, it’s virtually impossible to manage your time well, to be punctual, to be on top of what needs to be done and when. In this call, Lynne will explore how disorganization impacts us, and why those of us with ADHD so often struggle with organization. Listeners will learn the 10 Simple Rules for ADHD-Friendly Organization so they can find ways to get organized that work for them, for good!
NAVIGATING THE PERFECT STORM: When School Discipline and Criminal Prosecution Collide
Students with ADHD and its co-occurring conditions are at a high risk of getting suspended from school due to behavioral or academic incidents and also run a statistically much higher rate of coming into contact with the juvenile and/or criminal justice systems. More often than not, these students face school suspension AND criminal prosecution at the same time which can be further magnified by public outcry, press coverage and community outrage. These factors can converge into a perfect storm and parents need to know how to navigate this storm and protect their children. The presentation will shed light on this process and provide guidance to parents in protecting their children from further exposure with practical tips such as GETTING YOUR CHILD OUT OF THE LINE OF FIRE and USING the Disciplinary Process and the School’s Code of Conduct to your child’s advantage. The presentation will focus on the following points
- Demystifying the disciplinary process and educating parents on the law with respect to students with IEPs & 504 Plans
- Providing practical tips and strategies on protecting your child and minimizing their exposure
- Functional usage of the process and the school’s code of conduct as a tool to protect your child.
- The importance of coordinating a defense team, which includes your child’s mental health care provider along with a criminal defense attorney and education attorney

My Journey with ADD: Denial or IGNORance Will Not Take Away a Mental Disability
"As a young African American child who grew up in the early 1970’s, ADD/ADHD was something that wasn’t discussed, embraced or accepted amongst my community. If you had a behavioral problem, the cure was almost always a belt."
When T.L. Criswell became a mother in 2004, she adopted that same mentality. Until her six-year-old nephew cried, “Auntie, help me. Something is wrong with me because I can’t help myself." T.L. shares her story of the trial and error, advocacy and parenting her two children diagnosed with ADHD.

Presenter: Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC, CPCC, ACG of Dig Coaching Practice... Excavating the Aha! Daily
Those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) refuse to be bored! So much so that it can often get them into trouble. While boredom is most often associated with a lack of arousal and motivation, surprisingly, there is no universally accepted definition of it. Given boredom’s close association with attention, it isn’t surprising that individuals with ADHD have a higher tendency for being bored. Common ADHD challenges such as as impulsivity, distractibility, and procrastination can be ways that people try to free themselves from the uncomfortable possibility of being bored. For example, a man with ADHD who is bored might find himself picking a fight with his wife just to get a reaction. In this presentation we’ll take an in depth look at boredom, its impact on ADHD, common ways it manifests and how you can more effectively manage boredom when it rears its ugly head!
