This week we welcome one of my favorite ADHD experts, Dr. Ned Hallowell, to share his ADHD story. Ned and I talked about using our strengths, overcoming hurdles, negative self talk, the power of connection, and Ned did not shy away from sharing his own childhood trauma, which affects the way he loves on others and the way he parented his now grown children who also have ADHD. I can't wait for you to hear this ADHD gold from the fairy godfather of ADHD himself, Dr. Edward Hallowell. Be sure to subscribe to the podcast so that Part 2 shows up on your app immediately. Next week, we'll talk with Ned about parenting with ADHD and how to repair when we lose it on our kids. We also discuss how the DSM doesn't cover a major part of ADHD - the emotional regulation - and how we can work towards changing the perception of ADHD among others, ADHD medication, and the plethora of misinformation out there and his advice as a parent who is on the other side. Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D. is a board-certified child and adult psychiatrist and world authority on ADHD. He has spent the past four decades helping thousands of adults and children live happy and productive lives through his strength-based approach to neurodiversity, and has ADHD and dyslexia himself. Dr. Hallowell is a New York Times bestselling author of the groundbreaking Distraction series, which began with Driven to Distraction, co-authored with Dr John Ratey in 1994, sparked a revolution in understanding of ADHD, and they continue with their latest book, ADHD 2.0. Dr. Hallowell also hosts the Distraction podcast. Learn more at drhallowell.com Click here for the Show notes and transcription.
