I’m a mom of a 12 year old boy with ADHD. He’s the same way in dealing with a lot on a page. Menus are easier because he only reads the titles until he sees something he likes. Instructions overwhelm him so he covers the page and reveals a little at a time then moves on to more until its all read.
We do a lot of cognitive therapy, off & on as needed. This therapist is also great at teaching skills to and strategies compensate where needed.
I’m very sorry to hear that your ADHD interferes with your relationship. Breaks my heart even for I think this is my son’s fate too. I’m hoping to teach him to understand himself well the way I’m learning and then he must teach others closest to him and advocate for himself. He loves second chances and he’s going to demand this be part of life!
