  • “mixed” couples – one partner with and one partner without ADHD
  • dual –ADHD couples
  • therapists and counselors


  • partners do not need to have an official diagnosis of ADHD – only suspect they may have it – this course will help them determine how to proceed
  • any age
  • married or committed to each other
  • any gender mix
  • from any location in the world
