❤️ THE ADHD PLANNER LOVED BY MORE THAN 50K PEOPLE ❤️
If you’ve tried and ‘failed’ at planners, it’s not because you’re ‘bad’ at planning or organization. It’s because most traditional planners (you know, the kind with 365 daily page layouts staring accusingly at you) aren’t designed for your neurotype.
If you’re like me, you’ll feel guilty when you miss a day (or month) with regular planners, and then just stop using the planner altogether and throw it in a pile with all the others. But your brain isn’t broken, it’s just NEVER been given a flexible system that works with its creativity, passion and inconsistency. Until now…
We’re not organizational robots… we’re messy, organic humans, and we need a planner that evolves with us. And that’s the approach I took when designing this ADHD planner.
My planner design has a unique build-as-you-go format especially designed for ADHD brains.
It’s so good, it’s the only ADHD-specific planner of its kind recommended by therapists, psychologists and behavioral scientists (and yes, I have the testimonials and podcast interviews to back this up 😉💪 futureadhd.com/proof)

🔬 WHAT IS THE SCIENTIFIC BASIS? 🔬
There is so much to explore when you begin researching ADHD science, but I have focused on the research that relates most pressingly to productivity and routine.
The templates and the supporting information inside are based on the work of several significant contributors to ADHD research…
Dr Russell Barkley, particularly his comments on the nature of attentional differentiation being linked to shifts in interest and motivation; Dr Edward Hallowell & Dr John Ratey, and particularly their work on negative self perception links to self-efficacy, and overabundance (not limitation) of attention; and Tamara Rosier and her work on divergent and convergent thinking habits in ADHD brains and 'light switch' emotional responses to tasks which influences our executive functioning ability.
The planner includes 7 pages where I cover this research and link it to areas like ADHD & time perception, Divergent & Convergent thinking, ADHD & Money, ADHD & Motivation, Why ADHD Minds Wander, ADHD & Exercise and ADHD Hyperfocus.

What makes this planner neurodivergent-friendly? ⤵️
This digital planner has many typical features, like daily planning spreads, habit trackers, meal planning and checklists, but features significant differences.
Our ADHD brains start off energetically, but quickly get so overwhelmed by the sheer number of options that we’ll give up two days in.
Our brains need something different, so I tested and refined these templates so you have the absolute best tools, and the highest chance of consistency.
The bottom line? Every single page and template inside this planner has been carefully and intentionally created to scaffold, support and guide you to a place of more mental clarity, and less chaos and white noise. Even the central menu design is simplified compared to other digital planners - we need less clutter and distraction.
Sound amazing? It is. Get the ultimate tool to help you succeed!
Frequently asked questions
IS THIS COMPATIBLE WITH MY DEVICE?
The Future ADHD planner works with annotation apps available on Apple, Android and most Windows devices (as well as some others).
For a full list of compatible devices and recommended apps, read our support article here.
IS THIS AN APP?
No, this is not an app in and of itself. This is a planner file with an internal link and menu structure that has been designed to work with dedicated annotation apps.
There will be some installation required, but we also have tutorial videos available to help you get set up.
We also have a dedicated support team ready to help you out who you can contact here.
CAN I PRINT THE DIGITAL PLANNER?
Both printable and digital planners come as a PDF so you can technically print the digital planner just like any other PDF.
Our only caveats to that are that:
- the digital planner is built for tablet screen size/dimensions so it won't print perfectly on A4 or letter (though it's pretty close!), and;
- the background on the digital planner isn't a perfect white so you'll need to make sure you use a print setting that doesn't print that as a background colour or it might go through a fair bit of ink.
CAN I USE THE PLANNER IN LANDSCAPE MODE?
The digital planner has been designed to be used in portrait orientation to keep attention to one page - typical planners with two pages notoriously have too many elements and are a cause for distraction.
But, if you're the type of person who wants to use this in landscape mode, there are some apps that support this. See which apps support landscape mode here
This is a digital planner, designed to be used with annotation apps on iPads and other tablet devices - so you will receive a digital file. No item/s will be shipped to you. You will get installation instructions as well as a user guide inside the planner. You should be able to use the planner 'as is', but can also duplicate pages as you need them for your personal use.
Meet the creator
Hi, I’m Grace!
I was diagnosed with ADHD in my 30s, and am an ADHD educator (B. Ed), speaker, writer & host of the Future ADHD podcast.
I take a scientific approach to creating organizational tools that work with (not against) neurodivergent brains. I have integrated my training in breathwork and meditation to support the ADHD nervous system from a holistic perspective, and create a planner that promotes self care to support sustainable productivity.
My team and I are continuing to collaborate with psychologists, therapists and behavioral scientists to create a range of strength-based ADHD resources that help you understand your brilliant, divergent brain. Dive in and enjoy!
To ease & clarity,
Why I made this planner
When I made this planner, I didn't want to make a slightly better planner than what was out there (because what was out there sucked).
I made this planner to revolutionise what an ADHD planner is, to raise the bar and the expected standard for the quality and thoughtfulness that is required to make resources for people with ADHD.
And to make resources that truly make a difference. We have enough planners, journals & notebooks that we've started and then never opened again and so the mission was clear: make a planner that ADHDers have the best chance of sticking with.
The science behind the planner
The Future ADHD planner is part scheduler, part ‘growth mindset’ workbook. By this, I mean that I used scientific and expert research on ADHD to inform the planner design, rather than simply making another generic planner and slapping an ADHD label on it.
The impact it's having
I get messages almost on a daily basis from people who have found organisation and mental clarity with a planner for the first time in their lives.
You can read through my publicly available reviews and I also share them regularly on my Facebook page and IG stories.
What else I'm making
Honestly, the massive impact this planner has had has surprised me too. It's incredible meeting and supporting so many fellow ADHDers, and this work has motivated me to continue to provide strategies and support for my ADHD community based on neurobiology, polyvagal theory, unconscious beliefs, breathwork, nervous system regulation, meditation and radical acceptance practice, somatic therapies, bilateral stimulation, IFS inner child therapy and much more.
I talk about ALL these things and talk to some amazing experts around the world discussing the future of ADHD on The Future ADHD Podcast
