Subject: Please help a fellow person with ADHD

My name is Melissa Wright and I am working on my PhD in adult education and I need help with my dissertation. I was diagnosed with ADHD in my mid-twenties and am no in my early 40s and finally trying to realize my dream of earning a doctorate.

The study is about adults with ADHD and their readiness to engage in self-directed learning. Specific factors to be examined will be how self-directed learning readiness in adults with ADHD is related to gender, age of diagnosis of ADHD, level of education, types of treatment and other co-existing conditions. The study has been reviewed and approved by the University of Southern Mississippi's Institutional Review Board. I am looking for people who are at least 18 years of age and have an official diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to complete a 10-15 minute questionnaire.

If you are at least 18 years old AND have ADHD, would you please consider completing a questionnaire for me. It is anonymous and should only take about 15-20 minutes of your time. If you are or know someone who is 18 or over and has ADHD and are willing to complete the questionnaire, could you please e-mail me at melissa.wright@eagles.usm.edu with your/their e-mail address and I will send you/them a letter which explains the study and the instructions and link to complete it.

If you are interested, please e-mail me at melissa.wright@eagles.usm.edu.

Hi Melissa,
Wow, I just saw this, so unless you are still working on your dissertation, I'm way too late. How did you do on it?

Congrats on getting your PH.D, that's FANTASTIC!!

I'll be honest I don't know much about dissertations, is this something that you can add on to?

I'll be happy to give you some infomation on myself and my AD/HD. I'm 37, female, from Jersey.

Let me know if I can be of some kind of help to you. You can contact me at adultswithld@gmail.com

Good Luck,
