Eric Tivers is most known for being the host of the ADHD reWired podcast.
Today he’ll be sharing the exact same strategies he’s used with hundreds of thousands of families to help them with their own struggles with ADHD.
Something about Eric that really impressed me is he has also helped students understand the IEP (Individualized Education Program) process. He helped students learn how to build relationships with their teachers in order to teach them critical self-advocacy skills
To quote from his website, he is “one of the 15 million people in the United States that are living with ADHD. The hardest thing to accept about ADHD is the inconsistencies. The best thing about ADHD is how every struggle, every frustration, and every challenge has made him into a better person.
As a child, his father sustained a significant brain injury that introduced major challenges in his day to day life. This experience had a profound impact on Eric’s life and taught him the importance of being aware of your disability, accepting your challenges, and speaking up for yourself.
A student’s disability is not what determines long-term life outcomes (life satisfaction, quality of life, level of earnings, educational completion). It’s their level of self-awareness, self-advocacy, and self-determination that makes the difference.”
Eric Tivers is a licensed clinical social worker, coach, podcaster, speaker, consultant, and entrepreneur. He specializes in ADHD and has worked extensively with individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
He is also the host of the ADHD reWired podcast, a weekly podcast where he talks about his own experiences living with ADHD and invites guests and experts to share their stories, science and strategies.
