I’m a Pediatric Speech-Langauge Pathologist and my students love me. As a teacher/therapist, I’m an expert at “seizing the teachable moment”. It’s a strength for us ADDers. I’m an excellent therapist, if I do say so myself. But, I suck at paperwork and time management. Unfortunately, sometimes that’s all admin cares about.

I try to get my strokes from my students and their parents. They appreciate me and can see the results of good therapy/teaching. I try to focus on that when everything else is weighing me down.
