Timer on a Rope
Great way to make sure you hear the timer if you're cooking something, and easy to use. For those of us with ADD, this is a great way to keep track of time for anything. Need to get in the shower in half an hour? If I'm on the computer, I might lose track of that. But not if I set this baby. It's right around my neck, so my chance of losing it is greatly reduced. Also, we ADDers have a hard time getting started on tasks, especially big ones. What I do is tell myself "I'll just work on it for 10 minutes; I can do anything for 10 minutes." (This is where you set the timer.) Ten minutes is usually enough to get my hyperfocus to kick in, so I often keep going and get a good part of the task done. Also, I'm very oppositional and I don't like being interrupted by timers, so this is a great way to be able to blow it off without getting in trouble. I think only someone else with ADD would fully understand that last bit.

This is THE guide to eating for anyone whom either suffers from ADHD (Inattentive, Hyperactive, and Combined type), or Autism and for people whom have children with these disorders. The book guides you through how a gluten-free and casein-free diet can impact cognition in people with ADHD and Autism and provides recipes that are healthy, and easily followed and prepared. The food featured in the book isn't just for children. It will appeal to teens and adults as well. Feeding your children food from this book, whether they have ADHD and/or Autism or not will help them cultivate a very healthy and sophisticated pallet. I highly recommend this book for ANY person looking for healthy meals.
