Cynthia Hammer

CYNTHIA HAMMER, MSW, was significantly affected by inattentive ADHD for many years until she was finally diagnosed at age 49. Her book Living with Inattentive ADHD tells her story.

In 1994 she founded the non-profit organization ADD Resources, and in 2021, she founded the non-profit Inattentive ADHD Coalition because of her concern that too many children and adults with inattentive ADHD remain undiagnosed or incorrectly diagnosed. For more information, visit iadhd.org.

Fueled by her Master’s in Social Work and her experiences with ADHD, she seeks to share her unique perspective on how ADHD affects one’s life. She currently resides in Tacoma, WA.
