“In your seminar, you gave me the final piece of the puzzle that makes up Jacinta Noonan!  Your talk on Highly Sensitive People was one of the biggest turnarounds in my life, but little did I know an even bigger turnaround was about to happen.Thank You from the bottom of my heart for sharing your knowledge and observations of me as an ADD Adult.  You have handed me a gift that is more significant than you will ever know.  Thank you for helping me make sense of me.” – With love, Jacinta.

Adult Attention Difference Disorder (ADD)

In this keynote I speak on identifying and understanding Adult ADD and learning structures to manage ADD both at work and in relationships. I much prefer to talk about Attention Difference Disorder rather than Attention Deficit Disorder, which is the commonly known name. The reasons for that will become clear as I explain why Adult ADD is something to be celebrated.
