Lisa Aro founded Queen of the Distracted to chronicle her life and adventures living in a house full of ADHDers. Her husband of twenty-six years and five of their six children share an ADHD diagnosis as well as varied combinations of learning disabilities and co-occurring mental health issues. The firm belief that no parent should feel alone in the experience of parenting kids who don’t fit the typical mold drove her to write and share. Her work can also be seen at Everyday Health and ADDitude magazine. She can be found on Facebook and Twitter.
