ADHD SCREENER QUESTIONNAIRE
This is what I call a conversation starter to use with your loved one or your doctor. This self-test questionnaire for adults indicates whether or not you show signs of ADHD. Of course, only a psychologist or doctor can do a proper assessment and your doctor can give you an official diagnosis based on the psychologist’s recommendation.
DISCLAIMER: A proper ADHD diagnosis involves interviews and other assessments by healthcare practionners trained in ADHD. You’ll need to see a doctor in order to be diagnosed. This quiz is not intended to offer a medical diagnosis and should not be substituted for one.
REMEMBER: If you need help organizing your space or need help with some time management, I offer a free 30 minute session via telephone or video.
ALL DOGS HAVE ADHD
This wonderful children's book is a brief 5 minute read that can change someone's life. I use this book as an icebreaker to help people understand what ADHD can look and feel like. Great tool for people, teachers and grandparents who may not understand ADHD and its complexities. Be prepared to pull out the paper tissues; many people start crying when they read this book. I often hear "This is my child.", "This is my spouse.", "This is me. I finally understand my brain and why I behave as I do." I even had a woman declare after reading this book "I have been yelling at my husband for 20 years. I now understand what he has been dealing with all these years. We have a new relationship."

ALL CATS HAVE ASPERGER'S SYNDROME
This is the sister book to "All Dogs Have ADHD". Asperger Syndrome (now called High Functioning Autism) often goes hand in hand with ADHD and is even more misunderstood than ADHD. People who aren't aware of this condition often attribute it to poor parenting and manners. This book can help someone recognize potential signs that their loved one is on the Autism Spectrum. Great tool for building understanding about the behaviors and needs of someone who has High Functioning Autism.

ALL BIRDS HAVE ANXIETY
The latest book in this informative trilogy by Kathy Hoopmann introduces many thoughts about how anxiety can make someone feel. One-third of people living with ADHD will deal with anxiety at some point in their life and may also suffer from depression. This book can be used as a tool to help someone start the conversation about anxiety and depression so they can get professional help for treatment for these often unnoticed conditions.

I love these products so much, I have declared myself Unofficial Brand Ambassador. I highly recommend using them for your planner/agenda.

INCOME TAX EXEMPTION FORMS FOR
PEOPLE WITH ADHD
ADHD is notorious for encouraging procrastination, avoidance and general forgetfulness which may result in missing important deadlines, such as filling out your tax returns, for several years, even when you owe money. Rather than biting the bullet and paying the late fees, penalties and interests, in Canada, you can ask for a lightening of your tax load. This means you could potentially avoid having to pay those extra fees when you submit your income taxes (but you still need to pay your income taxes). However, you must first divulge to the government that you have ADHD. These tax exemption forms could potentially avoid being charged late fees.
We are providing these forms, however it is your
responsibility to provide the latest official documents.
Organize Thrive Monetize does not hold responsibility for
whether an individual is granted the tax exemption or not.
INCOME TAX CREDIT FOR PEOPLE WITH ADHD
Do you feel like ADHD is severely impacting multiple aspects of your life on a daily basis? Do you feel like your learning skills are compromised? Is your financial stability taking a hit? Recently, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has qualified individuals with ADHD to receive a tax benefit assuming they meet the requirements set by the CRA. Reach out for a helping hand by applying for the Canadian Disability Tax Credit (T2201). This form must be completed by a healthcare professional. Your Financial Advisor can also verify if you are eligible for the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).
Organize.Thrive.Monetize. does not hold responsibility for
whether an individual is granted the tax credit or not.

documents to a qualified and authorized professional.
