After New Year's, kids with ADHD often wish for things to be different at school—but don't know how to make that happen. Ann Dolin, M.Ed., shares the secret, which focuses on building strategies & routines rather than achieving big, unattainable goals.
Walt Karniski, M.D., discusses the history of ADHD medication, how it works, long-term effects, and how to choose the best treatment for your child from the more than 40 possible options.
Does your teen lack motivation—especially for boring or challenging tasks? Sharon Saline, Psy.D., shares time-management & organizational strategies, and how to develop the accountability and autonomy that will foster success in school and in life.
Each New Year is an exciting time to set new goals — until our enthusiasm wanes. Michele Novotni, Ph.D., teaches us how to formulate a plan and develop a toolbox of strategies to help us combat procrastination and stick with our new habits and routine.
Irritability commonly occurs alongside ADHD, but, as William French, M.D., explains, sometimes emotion regulation difficulties (ERD) indicate something more. Learn about mood disorders and steps you can take to help a child experiencing ERD.
Dozens of digital therapeutics—also referred to as neurotechnologies or digital medicine—are being developed and marketed. Randy Kulman, Ph.D., provides an overview of this new tech that uses video games, apps, and virtual reality to treat ADHD symptoms.
ADHD may be hereditary, but Joel Nigg, Ph.D., shares emerging research showing that environmental exposures can affect how genes are expressed. While stress and trauma can worsen learning & behavior challenges, certain lifestyle changes can lessen the harm.
Dena Cabrera, Psy.D., CEDS, and Megan Kniskern, R.D., discuss how to help teens with eating disorders build healthier nutrition habits, including how to address binge eating and anorexia, and how to know when a teen needs professional help.
Different thinkers require different strategies for getting things done (GTD) on the job. Linda Walker, PCC, shares workarounds that can help people with ADHD stay focused, communicate, meet deadlines, and reach peak productivity at work.
When deficits in executive functioning and motivation cause stress, many teens with ADHD check out. Maggie Sibley, Ph.D., teaches parents how to teach skills to compensate for EF challenges and how to build their teens' motivation and confidence.
ADHD often impacts social skills, which can lead to peer rejection. But we can change this. Brendan Mahan, M.Ed., M.S., shares how parents can work collaboratively with kids to rehabilitate their image, and how to enlist help from teachers.
Reports of eating disorders have risen alarmingly in the last three years. In this conversation and Q&A, Dena Cabrera, Psy.D., CEDS, discusses the link with ADHD, how to recognize eating disorders, how to talk about body image with teens, and more.
As Linda Roggli, PCC, explains, ADHD is more than the sum of its parts. Rather than a collection of symptoms that can be compartmentalized and treated to mitigate their impact on school or work, ADHD is a 24/7 companion that impacts every aspect of our being.
People with ADHD may experience emotional flooding (whether fear, anger, etc.) and say or do things we later regret. Sharon Saline, Psy.D., teaches us how to identify and work with our triggers and make intentional choices about words and actions.
Research shows that ADHD can delay a young person's maturation and executive functioning by as much as three years, complicating the leap to middle school (or high school, or college). Chris Zeigler Dendy, M.S., offers strategies to smooth the transition.
Time management is a crucial life skill. People with ADHD know this, but struggle to hit deadlines and get places on time. Ari Tuckman, Psy.D., MBA, explains how ADHD impacts the way you see time, and shares strategies to manage time more effectively.
2e, or twice exceptional, students are undeniably bright, but often plagued by inconsistent performance due to interfering symptoms from ADHD or another diagnosis. Learn how to help 2e students strive and thrive from Lisa Dieker, Ph.D., and Joshua Dieker.
Children who have ADHD are at an increased risk for developing chronic tic disorders, including Tourette syndrome. John Piacentini, Ph.D., presents an overview of symptoms, co-occurring conditions, and treatment and behavioral interventions.
ADHD evaluations can be time-intensive and expensive, so it’s important to be educated about what options exist and what to expect. Norrine Russell, Ph.D., gives parents the questions they need to ask during and after the process.
Punishment may keep a child with ADHD on task in the short term, but it may carry serious long-term consequences for children with weak emotional regulation. Gail Tripp, Ph.D., shares positive reinforcement strategies to use at school and at home.

I've listened to just 4 podcasts and find them very difficult to follow. The content is interesting and informative however the experts delivery is poor. They are trying to cram too much information into the segment, talk far too quickly and do not take time to reinforce or recap on critical points.

I have an 11 year old son with an ADHD and ODD dx. I am grateful for the information this podcast provides. He is very intelligent and kind hearted but displays some out of bounds behaviors for sure. It's helpful to understand more of what he is going through.

I was so excited to see your podcast, and I'm so interested in what you have to say, but your microphone/sound quality is killing my ears.🙁

That woman smacking her lips after every statement is horrifying for ADHDers with sound sensitivity or misophonia.

I have ADHD and some of the advice here would have completely sabotaged my life so I’m warning against this episode. For example using screens so much as a way to make the parents life’s easier instead of finding better solutions. It works in the short run but it’s like crack cocaine for me and I’m desperately trying to get a handle of my screen addiction as an adult. Check out Dr Gerry Chapmans (Famous for the 5 love languages) newest book about kids and screens. And I can continue but I just say that there are so many other good episodes that I just ask you to skip this one

This guy needs a speech coach badly. I’ve never heard so many umm and ahhs from a presenter, it makes it hard and distracting to absorb his information which is unfortunate.

i found it very hard to keep focused during this podcast, because of the large amount of information and the enormous number of stop-words ... but i highly recommend the book mentioned in the introduction. it is a very structured step-by-step (self-)learning guide to being more mindful, even with an adhd-brain. i needed a lot more than the proposed 8 weeks, but it thought me what mindfulness is and how it can help me to steer my focus, and relax as a consequence of that.
