We are so delighted that our evidence-based resources and tools for neurodivergents are having an ever-broadening impact globally. The Future ADHD planner has now been recommended by therapists, ADHD coaches, educators and behavioural scientists.
Lilly Engelke, Behavioural Scientist & ADHD Coach
Lilly Engelke, M.S., CSWC, shares how she stumbled across the planner and workbook, and how she was impressed by the robust scientific foundation. Lilly not only uses the Future ADHD planner personally, but also recommends it to her clients and friends.
"Hands down the best discovery I've made for a planner yet. I've tried a few others before this & got too overwhelmed using them. You can tell it was done by an ADHDer & The science was researched VERY well b/c she uses the research of many known professionals in the field of ADHD. As a behavioral scientist I LOVE that this very easy to navigate. It reduces the amount of effort we have to put in to using it but it also has behavioral principles implemented into it, such as: reinforcement for completing tasks that you don't want to do & task breakdown sheets to reduce overwhelm so you focus on the small steps of a task."
Laura Sgro, Therapist
Laura Sgro, LCSW, is a licensed therapist based in California who was diagnosed with ADHD in her late 20s. She shares why she loves the guilt-free and shame-free model of the planner, and why the Div/Con page is one of her favourite templates.

Michaela Wood, Medical Music Therapist
Michaela Wood, MT-BC, CCLS shares how she uses the Daily Focus Friend to organise her day.
"This is literally the only planner that's ever actually been functional for me. I am beyond obsessed with it and I tell literally everyone about it."
@michaelaleigh.mtbc If you have ADHD, I know you’ve been told to get a planner but how can we make planners work with our brains? This planner is from @future.adhd on Etsy and it’s literally the only planner I’ve ever had that’s worked for me. #adhd #adhdhacks #planner #timemanagement #musictherapy #musictherapist #mentalhealth #fyp ♬ original sound - Michaela Wood, MT-BC, CCLS
Stacy Bolt, Counselor
Belynda Smith, Parent Coach
"I downloaded your planner a week ago and it has completely excited, supported and nourished me! No longer do I have 73 different lists in different places - paper, whiteboard on the fridge, notes on my phone, emailed notes to myself and calendar reminders…. I use the daily planner when I want to, not every day, and it’s super useful not having empty pages staring accusingly at me. I love that I can make and shape the planner to suit my changing needs. Until now I’ve always put so much effort into being organised but have felt like I’m running myself in circles. This planner actually works. It is simple and adaptable and intuitive- I love it! I’m so grateful you made it. I’m new to an awareness of myself as an ADHDer so the science bits are brilliant. Finally, I just love the tone! Supportive, shame free and funny. Thank you so much for bringing this planner to the world, it is making my busy life a lot more peaceful and helping me feel a lot less overwhelmed- priceless!"
