class="alignleft" smart but stuck cover photo





“Smart but Stuck” offers a series of true stories about intelligent teens and adults who had gotten “stuck” in failures at school, work, or in getting along with friends and family because of their ADHD. It shows how they got “unstuck” by dealing with ups and downs of emotions they didn’t know they had. 


In this book you will meet:

• Sue, who earned high grades until middle school, then lost motivation for schoolwork and became disorganized and provocative in 9th grade, frustrating teachers and family while losing hope for herself. 
• Mike, a college student who just got put on academic probation. His dad always told him he’s smart but just lazy, and now he’s starting to believe it.
• Steve, a computer programmer whose ADHD struggles have led to him losing his job—and his wife. He’s good at programming computers, but not at programming himself.
• Sarah, who’s had trouble keeping track of things and getting work done since she hit menopause. She’s puzzled, since she never had such a hard time when she was younger.
