About May I Have Your Attention

Adult ADHD often goes undiagnosed, and can create significant stress in a marriage, commonly resulting in dysfunction and even divorce.  Ms. Orlov helps couples identify how ADHD affects them, then create ways to interact that are both ADHD-friendly and help each partner get their needs met.  While she focuses primarily on adult relationships, she also writes about family interactions - particularly when adults are struggling to help a child with ADHD.
