Episode 28, All Things ADHD – With Dr Russell Barkley
Wow, this was such a great conversation. We were able to cover so much ground in one hour, covering everything from “what is ADHD exactly?” to “How do stimulants actually work?”
Dr Barkley is a world-renowned researcher, clinician, speaker and writer who has dedicated his career to disseminating science-based information about ADHD. He has written the authoritative book for parents on this topic: Taking Charge of ADHD. Recently he has expanded on his concepts in his latest books 12 Principles For Raising A Child With ADHD and Taking Charge of Adult ADHD.
His website is www.russellbarkley.org which links to numerous more resources.
In this episode we also mention a number of resources including:
- CADDRA (Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance)
- CHADD (Children And Adults With ADHD)
- He also references the essay Welcome To Holland, something to ponder as we discover our child has special needs.
