Required Listening for Adult ADHD

Dr. Russell Barkley is a treasure. If you or a loved one has (or might have) adult ADHD, start here.

The content is current as of Fall 2021, research-based, factual, deeply compassionate, and practical.

Advice for ADHD parents of ADHD children: start with this book before researching ADHD in children. I wish I had. Managing your symptoms is a necessary prerequisite to effectively helping your child manage theirs. Put on your own oxygen mask before helping others. :)

Narrator is good, and communicates the ideas effectively. 4 stars bc of a handful of errors missed by the narrator and QC. It’s a hard job, I know, and despite the errors, the narrator contributed to a lisyening experience that will no doubt have a profound effect on my ADHD life, my patient spouse’s, and my ADHD child’s, for which I am deeply grateful.

very informative (and hurtful...err... helpful)

Beside the massive amount of information about how ADHD manifests in adults, I did like that the author made clear that medication is the most helpful tool.

I learned a lot about myself, or more so, that a lot is based on ADHD, and not me being lazy or stupid.

if you are (as me) somebody who was diagnosed rather late in life, listen to this. Grieve the possibilities we missed, and be amazed that there are still chances for us to succeed :)
