The features of digital society including endless information, information turn-on, and an increase in distractions and interruptions impacting adult with ADD right where it hurts – in your weakened executive function. The result: digital disorganization. Digital disorganization is characterized by an attack on your working memory, the extraordinary challenge of getting things done (with an emphasis on ‘done’) and more difficulty planning than ever before. There’s no putting the genie back in the bottle. Digital society is here to stay, but digital disorganization is not inevitable.
