After nearly 2 decades improving relationships and team building with corporate clients, Rebecca took her skills and understanding of human behavior and combined it with her knowledge of Attention Deficit Disorder. As the mother of an ADD son, she saw the challenges firsthand and wanted to better understand. She went in search of information and support. What she found was a lot of information about the brain and theories on the cause but not a lot of practical support on how to raise a child with ADD. So she created her own. Not Wrong Just Different: Seeing ADD Differently.
She quickly gained followers to her blog and social media presence and was asked to do a TEDx talk: ADD as our Innovators. Her TEDx talk has over 100,000 views to date.
Rebecca is also the founder of ADD Advancement Initiative, an organization committed to raising funds & developing advocates for ADD education around the world.
