How-to television shows on organization have become increasingly popular in the last few years. The format is fairly typical: a friendly stranger comes into a person’s home to help them clean out their clutter and get organized. Within an hour, the problem is solved. But while millions of Americans count on books, websites, and television shows to help them become more organized, most of these popular methods simply don’t work for adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
One of the common symptoms of Adult ADD is difficulty with organization, which results in cluttered homes and offices. This lack of organizational skills, combined with a tendency to become easily bored or overwhelmed, adds to the stress and frustration that many adults with ADD suffer from on a daily basis.
The ADD Management Group, a company that specializes in coaching adults with ADD, has developed a new method for getting rid of clutter. Designed for and by adults with ADD, the process is presented in three simple steps:
(1) Eliminate useless items
(2) Create personalized, ADD-friendly organizational systems
(3) Develop structure to maintain the systems and prevent clutter from accumulating.
“Traditional methods of organizing just aren’t ADD-friendly,” explains Jennifer Koretsky, founder of the ADD Management Group. “Because of a tendency to become easily overwhelmed and burnt out, adults with ADD need organizing and clutter-clearing techniques that are simple, personalized, and easy to maintain. This system is designed to work with a person’s ADD.”
Countless adults with ADD have already triumphed over their clutter using this new method. Tracy Miller of Stroughton, MA says, “I was absolutely embarrassed and disgusted with the piles and piles of clutter in my office. In 3 weeks, my office was 100% better and I also had a system of organizing and maintaining my space. I can’t wait to start utilizing this in the other parts of my house and be proud to say “come in” when the doorbell rings.”
David Smart of The Woodlands, TX adds “I’ve probably read 20 organization books in the last 10 years and it’s always been about the systems. This method is about ADD-friendly lifestyle changes. This program really works!”
The ADD Management Group has made this method available to the public in the form of a home study kit titled Kiss Your Clutter Goodbye!
