ADHD Comics

It’s the end of October, which (some of you might know?) is ADHD Awareness Month.

For awhile now, I’ve been crafting comics about what it feels like to be a parent of a child with severe ADHD, though these comics currently exist only on my computer and in various file folders scattered throughout my office.

Eventually, I hope to have a permanent online home for the ongoing story of my own journey toward understanding my son’s neurodivergence, and becoming a better parent, and I will share that here on my blog when it becomes a reality.

Today, though, I’m extremely excited to share my comic “What I Thought About ADHD,” which should offer a window into my world as a parent. I can’t tell you what it’s like to have ADHD, but I can at least spread awareness of how it manifests in (my own) child, and how it can make you feel as a parent, and (perhaps) how you should consider reacting to what you see.

I’m indebted to Editor Michael Wheaton at Autofocus (a great publisher of nonfiction work!) for giving this piece a home, and I hope you’ll check it out here at the link.
