Jessica McCabe (How to ADHD)
JessicaMcCabe is the creator and host of How to ADHD, the top YouTube channel about ADHD. She and her team regularly release easily accessible, research-based content providing a toolbox of strategies and deeply felt understanding and acceptance to ADHD brains, as well resources and education for the people who love them. The channel focuses on teaching people how to be themselves and work with their brains, rather than against them, and has garnered the support of almost half a million subscribers. Jessica has a passion for sharing what she’s learned through her own struggles and experiences with ADHD; which she does in a unique style that spans the range from quirky and humorous, to deeply vulnerable and validating. She is well known for her 2017 Ted Talk, “This is What It’s Really Like to Have ADHD,” where she shares with the audience what it’s like to grow up with an ADHD brain and all the ups and downs that come with it. Her work has been featured by the New York Times,, Upworthy, and more.
