ADHD reWired

This episode is the recording of April’s live Q&A.  The questions answered in this episode were submitted by listeners of this podcast, both ahead of time and live.  I am, once again, joined on this episode by Brendan Mahan. In this discussion, you will hear us discuss several topics, including asking for workplace accommodations, breastfeeding mothers unable to take ADHD medication, imposter syndrome, children “outgrowing” ADHD, and much more.  

If you’re listening to this on the day it is published, you can listen to May’s live Q&A at 1:30pm Eastern.  Join Brendan Mahan and me as we answer your questions live.  You can register at
