How to ADHD: Working with Your ADHD Brain (Not Against It!) with Jessica McCabe

February 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


EXPERT: Jessica McCabe

“How to ADHD” is a powerhouse. Since launching her YouTube channel in 2015, Jessica McCabe has attracted more than 1.6 million subscribers to her smart, insightful, shame-blasting videos about living with a neurodivergent brain. For many people, Jessica is the face and heart of ADHD.

Diagnosed with ADHD at age 12, Jessica lost things constantly, couldn’t finish projects, and felt like she was investing more effort than everyone around her while falling further and further behind. By her early 30s, she was broke, desperate, and determined to find answers by hyperfocusing wholeheartedly on ADHD research. An actor by trade, she began recording videos to make sense and keep track of what she was learning about her ADHD brain and, in the process, found a community that was also searching for answers and understanding.

Last month, Jessica released her first book, also called How to ADHDIn this special conversation with ADDitude editors, Jessica will discuss themes from her book, including the following:

  • The key she has discovered to navigating a world not built for the neurodivergent brain
  • How the ADHD acronym is misleading and unhelpful for people who have plenty of attention but an inability to focus that attention
  • The economic cost of not treating ADHD, especially in women
  • How she’s learned to pay attention to time in new and effective ways that improve self-time management
  • How to counteract sleep comorbidities like obstructive sleep apnea, insomnia, sleepwalking, excessive daytime sleepiness, and more
