Welcome to Acing ADHD—where your journey to self-discovery begins!
Acing ADHD was born out of the personal journey of our founder, Dory Connor. After receiving her diagnosis of ADHD, dyspraxia, dyslexia, and anxiety, Dory noticed a lack of available resources to support neurodiverse individuals.
Motivated to make a difference, she pursued a psychology degree and obtained a coaching certificate. Dory's first-hand experience, coupled with her professional qualifications, equips her with valuable insights into empowering individuals with ADHD and anxiety.

WHAT IS ADHD?
ADHD, short for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects a significant portion of the population worldwide. Depending on the country and research source, it is estimated to impact approximately 4-15% of individuals. This condition knows no boundaries, as it affects people of all genders, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, and educational levels. Chances are, you know someone who is affected by ADHD, as it cuts across diverse demographics.
The Impact of ADHD
As the name implies, ADHD is a disorder characterized by challenges related to attention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. However, it is essential to recognize that the impact of ADHD is not uniform for everyone. Some individuals may primarily struggle with inattentiveness, while others experience hyperactivity and impulsivity. There is also a combined type, where both inattentive and hyperactive/impulsive symptoms coexist .
The effects of ADHD can be profound, influencing various aspects of an individual's life, including focus, emotions, executive functioning, energy levels, and behaviour. However, it's important to note that ADHD is not just a source of difficulty; it can also bring unique strengths and abilities.
If you or someone you know is diagnosed with ADHD or suspects having it, it's natural to have concerns about the challenges it may present. However, there is hope, and support is available. The first step is to take a deep breath and recognize that proven strategies can assist with most difficulties associated with ADHD.
Embrace the Possibilities
