Unbelievably helpful

I have been searching for a long time for information about ADHD and this podcast has the most consistently helpful content I have encountered. The speakers are clearly experts in their fields and the Q&A after the talks hit the topics I would have asked. I am very grateful for this resource!

Advice? Really?

I was most excited both personally and professionally to offer this resource to people with Adult ADHD. Unfortunately I just listened to an episode promoting IRT and have to remain skeptical at best. This is not an evidence based practice and seems to have been formed around psychodynamic like concepts versus science. We can assert that though some have benefited from approaches like these, they way heavily into assumptions about the nature of humanity, couples, and tendency of behaviors in adults. Whenever your integrations focus on what people “tend to be” there is a big chance that you’re stepping into guess work instead of actual psychotherapy. I do hoe many benefit from education and treatment for ADHD but hope later episodes on here will promote more supported forms of therapy.

Very poor sound quality

Honestly I’m only giving the podcast 3 stars because I’ve been a member of the CHADD organization for sometime now and let me tell you I was extremely surprised of just how bad the sound quality actually is...it not until the last couple posted episodes can you even hear the speaker. What’s the point o keeping the old episodes posted if the quality is so terrible. Honestly I’d recommend taking those down and building a new library, otherwise the poor rating may continue. Thank you CHADD for your continued hard work and dedication to bringing folks scientifically proven information on ADHD.
