My name is Brenda Nicholson. I am an ADD mom and the mother of 3 children with Attention Deficit Disorder. I am also an ADD Coach, trained at the American Coaching Association. I have been coaching for about 7 years.
I first started studying and learning about ADD over 20 years ago, when my son was small. I suspected early on that he had Attention Deficit Disorder, so I started reading everything I could about it and talking to anyone who would listen. I wanted to be the best mom that I could be, and I believed that in order to do so, I needed to learn about ADD.
When my son’s ADD symptoms began interfering with his school performance, I went to his teachers, the school psychologist, and his pediatrician, looking for help and for answers. It was soon apparent that all of my research had made me the expert! It was dismaying to find out that I knew more about ADD than the professionals who were supposed to be helping my son, but I was grateful that I at least had the knowledge to step in and do it myself.
There are so many other parents out there who find themselves in the same position, but without the benefit of my years of experience and research. They go to professionals looking for guidance, advice, and help for their child, and find little. That’s where ADD Student and my other site, ADD Moms come in. I created this business to help parents like you – parents who have a child with ADD or ADHD, and need some help in helping their child succeed.
I am dedicated to helping children, adolescents, and adults with ADD/ADHD live happier, more successful, and productive lives. Please let me know how I can help you. Contact me at Brenda@ADDstudent.com.
