Katelyn Mabry

ADHD goes WAY beyond, "look a squirrel!" My name is Katelyn Mabry and I want to take you on a journey with me! A journey that began when I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 10 years old. "What is wrong with me?" "I'm not good enough", "I hate myself" and "I'm stupid" where all too common thoughts revolving in my brain! I felt ALONE in how I thought and felt! "Hi It's Me! I have ADHD" was written and created to help children feel understood, connected, and educated on how their minds and emotions work. As a Reading Specialist, it's my mission to educate, empower, and encourage teachers, parents, social workers, and peers to understand and respond in love to those of us internally struggling with symptoms that come with the ADHD diagnosis. As a mother of 4, and having a daughter recently diagnosed with ADHD, it deepens my passion to dig beneath the diagnosis to discover the many gifts and talents that can be tapped into and used to ultimately be successful in life! I may have ADHD, but I choose not to let my "neuro-diverse" brain define me; instead I am determined to redefine it!
