About the Series

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adulthood can hold you or someone you love back in all areas of life.

From causing relationship issues to interfering with work productivity, and even to co-occurring with other mental health issues like substance abuse, anxiety, and depression, adult ADHD is pervasive—especially when it goes undiagnosed.

In fact, this developmental condition all-too-often flies under the radar in adolescence.

As a triple-board certified neuropsychologist, Dr. Judy Ho assesses adults for ADHD very often in her private practice. In this eye-opening series, she shares this invaluable insight.

Dr. Judy and MedCircle host Kyle Kittleson shed light on how to improve daily functioning when it comes to organization, attentiveness, time management, and even relationships.

Millions of adults are living with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Without education or treatment, ADHD can lead to chronic fatigue, anxiety, disorganization, and issues at work and at home. This series provides the education and solutions needed to better manage adult ADHD and ultimately live a more productive, happier life.

As a neuropsychologist, this is my bread and butter...with the right education, there is effective help.
