Let's Chat... ADHD

Update: 2023-05-16


#073. Let’s Chat… Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (a.k.a. ADHD)

These Let’s Chat episodes are for me (Claire Sandys, host of The Silent Why podcast) chat one-on-one to a guest who has experience or expertise in a particular area that can help us deal with, or prepare for, loss.

In this episode, I’m talking to Dr Edward Hallowell (a.k.a. Ned) from Boston, a child and adult psychiatrist, Harvard faculty member and graduate, and world authority on ADHD. 

Ned has spent the past four decades helping thousands of adults and children live happy and productive lives through his strength-based approach to neurodiversity.

He’s written many books including his Driven to Distraction series and his latest book ADHD 2.0, he’s been featured on many media channels including; 60 minutes, Oprah, CNN, The Today Show, The New York Times, Time Magazine and much more. He has ADHD and dyslexia himself and is the founder of The Hallowell ADHD Centers in across America.

In this conversation we talk about what ADHD is, why Ned refers to it as ADD, the impacts it can have on a daily life, what treatment options are available and why he believes it can be a special superpower.

And with each Let’s Chat guest I'm building a whole tool shed (metaphorically), of tools to help you face and get through loss. So let’s see what Ned adds to my growing list of tools.
