Kate Kelly, a pioneer in ADD/ADHD brain dysfunction passed away. She devoted her life, determined and committed educating with on-line videos, programs and co-authoring a best seller You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?
She emphasized: how, why and what hurts, what works, and what doesn’t. Kate co-authored with Peggy Romundo, You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!
Because I have recently become active in the on-line educational community attempting to leave a better understanding in brain injury I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Kate or spend much time outside my blog. This is all very new to me, but I’ve been inspired by others from the ADD/ADHD community.
My connection and readers of my blog are most familiar with another pioneer and inspiring person Madelyn Griffith-Haynie, MCC, SCAC from http://addandsomuchmore.wordpress.com who visits my site and actively leaves educational comments and insight. I hope to meet Madelyn in the future. Her ideas to help resolve many ADHD problems overlap with traumatic brain injury and other diagnosis with brain dysfunction.
Kate’s work is ongoing and her legacy is utmost importance to those who struggle with similar situations and conditions. I look forward to the day her work overlaps with the brain injury community. Her loving family and friends enjoyed her life. I will cherish her works and help link her work to brain injury.
Through Kate’s life experiences and work she helps those who were misunderstood through their daily struggles and provides them support, education, and an opportunity to live an ideal life. Her book You Mean I’m Not Lazy, Stupid or Crazy?!, is full of humor and facts about ADD/ADHD. If you haven’t read this bestseller, please do so.
Kate’s work will forever be cherished. She’ll be sorely missed, but her work is very much alive!
Condolences to Kate’s amazing and loving family.
