ADHD and Managing Signal Based Attention with REBEL

As ADHD people, we pay most attention to the the things that generate the biggest signals. This causes us to give our attention to things that may not be our priority, and to avoid the big signals that are painful. The big signal generators that often get our attention include: interest, urgency, avoidance, emotion, visibility, novelty, and perceived conflict. This week Cam and Shelly bring the REBEL model together by discussing how we can apply REBEL model to navigate our ADHD brain's "signal based attention system". We discuss several successful outcomes with our ADHD coaching clients that demonstrate REBEL in action and how it can help us tune into more subtle signals.
