Lou Brown - ADHD Coach & Consultant
"I dream of a world in which every person with ADHD is understood, embraced
and supported. Where information and good quality treatment is easily accessible.
And in which individuals with ADHD thrive and flourish, achieve their dreams,
and live full and happy lives." ~ Lou Brown
Lou Brown is an ADHD Coach, Consultant, Educator & Advocate. She is also the author of ADHD in Primary School: a comprehensive guide to understanding and supporting students with ADHD in the classroom and the blog Thriving with ADHD.
Prior to becoming a coach, Lou worked as a registered nurse for more than seventeen years. She worked in a wide variety of specialities and held 3 senior nursing roles. When she and her son were both diagnosed with ADHD in 2016, Lou made the decision to fondly farewell her nursing career and launch into her ultimate passion – improving the lives and outcomes of individuals with ADHD.
Lou now works one-on-one with parents of children who have ADHD, as well as with adults who are affected by the disorder. With a unique insight into both the symptoms of ADHD and what it feels like to experience them, Lou also provides ADHD education and workshops for parents, adults and teachers. As a tireless ADHD advocate, she frequently collaborates with ADHD Australia, Parents for ADHD Advocacy Australia, and the ADHD Foundation Australia and has appeared in multiple television interviews and in online and print publications, sharing her lived experience with the aim of fostering understanding and awareness around ADHD.
