Written by professional organizer Susan Pinsky, Organizing Solutions for People with ADHD, 3rd Edition outlines a practical life management approach that emphasizes easy maintenance techniques and maximum efficiency, catering to the specific needs of the ADHD population.
Divided into two easy-to-read sections, the first covering this life-changing new method and the second showing how to implement it in each part of the home, Susan’s practical solutions address the most common organizing dilemmas among her ADHD clientele, while also drawing on her own personal experience as the mother of a child with ADHD.
