Learning from our ADD ADHD experiences

We learn from experience

One  of the basic tricks to that learning is to remember the specific experiences.  And make rules from them. If we remember the experience, its easier to remember the rule and to follow it.

Losing the car

I remember spending 10 minutes looking for the car in the gym lot.  Rule - Say out loud where I parked it.

Ken pointed out that I need to say it every…
