ADD Friendly Ways To Organize Your Life by Professional Organizer Judith Kolberg and Renowned Psychologist Dr. Kathleen G. Nadeau



Recently my co-author Dr. Kathleen G. Nadeau and I released a revised addition of our book ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life. With changes in our world since the book was first published in 2002, we felt it was time to update the book to include more information about  organizing digital information, managing distractions, organizing finances, and coping with the “black hole” of the Internet.

We are very honored to have some of the foremost experts in the fields of ADD and ADHD review our book. The response has been overwhelming. Here is what some of the experts are saying about the revised ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life.
