Book Gang Podcast Episode 32: Improve Your Reading Memory and Focus

Do you struggle with reading focus and retention? Paula Engebretson is a Certified Life Coach that specializes in helping adults with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) live their best life.

Who better to lead us on reading strategies and reading comprehension than her?

At 31 years old, Paula was diagnosed with ADHD and had to learn how to create systems and routines that made sense with how her brain works.

We discuss the symptoms of adult ADHD and how to begin the process of diagnosis and treatment.

Today’s goal is to give you real strategies for reading more and how you can begin working with your learning disability instead of against it.

You don’t need ADHD to benefit from today’s episode. In these distracted times, all of us could benefit from this life coach’s advice!
