ADHD reWired

This Week’s Episode:

This episode is the recording of September’s live Q&A.  These Q&A sessions take place the second Tuesday of every month.  The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live.  I am joined on this episode by Brendan Mahan.

In this episode, we cover a variety of topics.  Some questions are about adolescents with ADHD, from morning routines to college applications.  We also talk about managing emotions during hormonal changes, weight loss with ADHD, managing anxiety and excitement, and many more topics.
