Have you heard of bionic reading? Its typically used to speed up reading by bolding the first letter of each word, but it also helps with increasing understanding of the text. There are converters online, might be interesting to check out and see if it helps!

Read out loud. Even quietly to yourself. Also agree on bionic reading as something to check out. True game changer

Sometimes I rent an audiobook and get the physical copy of the same book and use them at the same time, so that I don’t fidget with my hands or get distracted by outside sounds. It really works!

Hi all! Newly diagnosed last month. Started Adderall and was only able to fill one 2 week prescription before it became impossible to get I my area of Tampa, FL. Dr switched me to Ritalin but I don't have much of a benefit from it at all compared to Adderall.

Pharmacies are saying it may be another couple of months before they expect adderall to be back. Anyone else having this issue? Was on Adderall 10mg twice daily. Now on Ritalin 10mg twice daily. I just don't have the same level of focus!
