I’m Ryan and I created ADHD Dude because I realized that most families of kids with ADHD were getting ineffective help, losing valuable time and spending a lot of money with little result. ADHD Dude provides families with the training they need to help their child build skills, improve behavior, and most importantly — feel better about themselves.

For families who have been searching for help for their child, there is effective help that is aligned with research data and Pediatric ADHD treatment recommendations. ADHD Dude is for families who need real help, right now.

"For YEARS I've told their pediatrician and the behavioral therapist about their inability to understand time in a meaningful way and no one until Ryan has been able to tie it to ADHD in a way that makes sense or offer concrete solutions other than digital timers which usually result in more conflict. This is by far some of THE best money I've spent on trying to help my ADHD kiddos. I wish I'd had these webinars 2-3 years ago so I could have helped my daughter at an earlier age."
