Coping with the Chaos of Life: Messages from a Dyslexic with ADHD

We can all learn from the strategies of people with neuro-diverse brains. What can those with the gift and advantage of dyslexia tell us about how to manage and cope with stress? 

In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Tynen is joined by Brai Schwandt (MS in Electrical Engineering), who will outline some strategies used by people with dyslexia and ADHD. Those with neuro-diversity are often gifted with strong spatial awareness, creativity, and intuition. Their strategies can enhance the lives of everyone. Brai will specifically focus on the coping tools they developed during graduate school.

Especially for those who are struggling with graduate school and postdoctoral challenges during COVID-19, this exploratory session explains these strategies--from taking frequent breaks to engaging in creative activities. We will explain how to make changes to your daily schedule in a way that supports you and creates the most flexible and creative life you want to live.
