Evidence based support for
adults with ADHD
There is nothing wrong with a neurodivergent brain, it’s just different.
There are a lot of strengths to a neurodivergent brain, and we passionately believe that differences should be respected and supported rather than viewed as disorders or deficits.
Of course, navigating life with ADHD and autism can have its fair share of challenges, especially when you’re diagnosed later in life.
Fortunately, there has been extensive research into evidence based supports that are specifically diagnosed for the unique neurodivergent brain.
Our easy to implement, practical and neurodivergent specific hacks are designed to
Graesan Nixon, Founder of The OT for ADHD
“Hi there, I’m Graesan Nixon, an Occupational Therapist with a passion for helping neurodivergent people to thrive and a lifetime of experience of having ADHD.
Living with ADHD has helped me develop a unique perspective and a deep understanding of the challenges and triumphs that come with a neurodivergent brain. But more importantly, it’s sparked my passion to help others with ADHD through a holistic approach that combines evidence-based strategies, compassionate support, and personalized guidance.
I firmly believe that ADHD is not a ‘deficit’; it’s an opportunity for growth and to leverage the unique strengths of an ADHD brain. As an Occupational Therapist, my mission is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where adults with ADHD can feel understood, validated, and empowered.
Together, we’ll explore various strengths-based approaches, tailored specifically to your unique needs. Our practical and neurodivergent strategies are designed to support you to manage executive functioning challenges and cultivate a deeper understanding of your ADHD brain.
Whether you’re struggling with time management, forgetfulness, organisation or overwhelm, we’ll work collaboratively to identify practical solutions that are designed to support you to navigate the challenges of being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world.”
