There are few things I describe as life changing, it this podcast is one of them. Every speaker is highly knowledgeable and insightful on ADHD. Providing very practical and educational advice, it’s through this podcast I’ve learnt so much about my own ADHD diagnosis. Most importantly through it I’ve learnt how to better parent my daughter with sever ADHD. I can’t thank the producers and speakers enough for this. There’s no better resource on ADHD I know about!
Really interesting and informative. One small thing; the audio on the intro is terrible. I bet people tune in for the first time and turn off hearing that.
With this many episodes of course there’s going to be a bit of variance in quality but there is a lot of very useful information within.
