What does hyperactivity look like for adults?WHAT DOES HYPERACTIVITY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU?

While on my journey to self-identification, one of the aspects of my neurodiversity I was most unsure about was the 'hyperactive' part of ADHD. I think we are so use to seeing a child bouncing all over the place as the main expression of hyperactivity. It wasn't until I started listening to ADHD adults that I could really take notice of some of the things I do myself. Masking also applies to ADHD and so there may be things we have diverted our hyperactivity to that are more 'acceptable' in society.

With that in mind, I think it would be interesting for those who want to, to share how hyperactivity looks for you. Perhaps someone will read your experience and it will help them see beyond the stereotypical views 💜🧠🌈

(I also ask that people don't undermine or invalidate what people share. If you disagree that something is hyperactivity, either listen/learn or scroll.)

*Edit to add: this isn't a checklist for ADHD and these aren't things specific to just ADHD. It's just some of the things I do that I hadn't even realised were how I express my hyperactivity.

[Image Text: "What does hyperactivity look like for adults?
For me it's:
Impulse spending
Making lots of posts, comments, likes, shares etc on social media
Being hyper-verbal/info dumping
Getting restless and having to move your body
Being silly with your kids/pets/friends/spouse
Talking in accents
Singing songs to communicate.
Putting on loud music"]

ADHD: From Daydream Believer to High Achiever

For families, individuals and professionals.

That’s my signature talk. I normally run it for 3 hours on a Sunday morning face to face with a break for a cuppa.
Would that work online do you think?

It’s the theory of ADHD wrapped up in a very human set of stories. Mostly my own, but my children’s and the many people I have worked with also.

CTRL. ALT. DEL.

Barriers to learning…

An example of an unintentional barrier to learning that simply doesn’t need to be there.

I need more responses so I thought I'd share a short video to explain the problem a bit better. This is one of three examples I have on video.If you work in education or you're a student, please help. Why would you ask this young man to use ctrl+alt+del?Here's the survey. it will take about 3 mins.https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/RLJVBVLAnd share, share share.Thank you.

Is there really a need to make Ctrl+Alt+Del part of the log in process?

Where is the equity here? 
Access is given via a member of support staff to ensure #equality.

Simplifying the log in process would result in #equity.

Medical model of disability: the student is disabled and needs support to access the system.

Social model of disability: the system should adapt so that the student doesn’t need support.
