“Kristin has created a one-of-a-kind, brilliant, and must-have ADHD resource for those navigating the unknown world of ADHD. I have never seen anything like it. Kristin’s thorough, yet straightforward approach is essential when advocating for anyone with ADHD. This step-by-step, easy to understand workbook, accurately summarizes many different key resources. Parents of children with ADHD need one…I admire it greatly.”

“Kristin Seymour is pure ‘no-nonsense’ in her approach to breaking down ADHD. I have spent 40 years in the assessment and diagnoses of preschoolers through adults with learning disabilities and ADHD. This binder puts at the user’s fingertips all the things necessary to navigate the medical and educational system of diagnoses and accessing services. Kristin includes great recommendations and practical knowledge to help clients with ADHD. Kristin put into words some of the things I have been doing for 40 years. This resource binder is fantastic!!”

“Kristin’s playbook for ADHD is a complete tool for any parent or adult trying to understand and manage ADHD. It is well organized, easy to navigate, and I have referred to it multiple times in just the past few weeks. I wish that I had this when my son was first diagnosed, I could have saved myself so much time and confusion of trying to understand all of the options to consider.”
(Mother of a Teenager with ADHD who is a patient of Kristin Seymour)
“My son had been diagnosed with ADHD seven years ago. I always felt the medication was a juggling act between something that would help with behaviors that keep teachers happy, but something that didn’t stifle a vibrant and happy personality and leave him with no appetite. When I would express concerns that I wasn’t sure if the medication was working because, in his case, he was still talking out and causing distractions in class, I felt the standard response of doctors was to offer to ‘increase dosage.’ I just didn’t feel we were giving the proper analysis and consideration to getting him properly medicated. As he got older, the stakes for impulsivity get higher, because there is too much for at risk with an impulsive decision. After reading Kristin’s book, and learning of her history with ADHD, I arranged for a meeting with my son. Because she has “been there”, and made some of the same sort of impulsive, thoughtless decisions as a kid, there is a unique understanding and bond that she can develop. She read through his past physician assessments, met with my son and learned what was working and wasn’t working. She suggested a new medication which has been working quite well. She also has given me more insights into the way the ADHD mind works, something that was totally foreign to me since I didn’t have it myself. There are a lot of “little things” that can be done to help an ADHD student stay on the right track, and that combined with the correct medication, can transform the behaviors and results a kid experiences. I am grateful to Kristin for the help she has given us, and feel lucky that she is right in my own backyard!”

“Kristin Seymour provides a comprehensive and easy to use resource binder for parents to navigate the often confusing world of the educational process and medical field associated with ADHD. Drawing from her own life experiences and using simple language, this resource guides parents how to begin the process of setting up systems and maintain a sense of order and organization to ensure success and confidence for their child in all areas of life. This resource binder includes everything parents and educators need in order to plan for success, and should be a required documentation tool for educators in the future. It is what we have needed for many years to be able to collaborate and plan effectively and efficiently, with all of the necessary information in one place. Brilliant!”

“As the parent of a newly diagnosed child with ADHD, The Fog Lifted binder has been instrumental in helping me navigate the thicket of information. This is a complete and extremely valuable tool no matter where you are in your journey with ADHD. The binder is a one-stop-shop of information; there are ideas (inside and outside the box), tools of structure and organization, recipes, and a wealth of resources, along with explanations of key documents. The material is precise and gives you exactly what you need, including examples to help you communicate with the school system. As a college professor, I understand the importance of the educational future of a child with ADHD. This binder will help parents and students get the most out of their situation and build toward a future goal. I highly recommend this binder to any parent!!”
