Hi Gwen

It’s tricky if you don’t feel you can approach him. Even if you do, he might not want to listen? I think I would be tempted to invest in a book such as:

Taking charge of adult ADHD by Russell Barkley, The Guilford Press

And just let him read it in his own time. If it resonates with him then he won’t be able to stop reading it.

There are other equally good books out there but this is one I have read.

I have heard others mention Driven to Distraction.

It’s just a thought. You can’t get anywhere unless he starts to question if he is ADHD.

Good luck.

I am sure others here with experience of dealing with family with it will have better advice.
