It’s the very first episode of the ADHD Essentials podcast!
In this episode, I’m joined by Dr. David Nowell. He’s a clinical neuropsychologist, international speaker, and renowned expert on ADHD.
This episode is an overview of ADHD. We talk about it all! How ADHD works in the brain, the role of dopamine, behavior management, reframing perspectives, even mindfulness. It’s a wide ranging discussion filled with science, stories and strategies.
Dr. Nowell can be found at DrNowell.com.
