The process of reaching an ADHD diagnosis rests primarily on your    personal history. However neuropsychological testing can reveal a ton of useful information for expanding your understanding of your own ADHD. As Dr. H says in this ep, "It's the closest thing we have to an MRI of your mind." But as Ned also points out, this type of testing is not necessary for a diagnosis.

Legitimate fake news is a real threat to democracy, says Michigan State University psychology professor Zach Hambrick. And as you'll hear him explain, there are reasons why some people believe fake news more than others. It's an eye-opening conversation that reveals how all of us can fall victim to confirmation bias, the importance of fact-checking, and what happens to people's beliefs when politics are removed from the equation.

The best part and the worst part about having ADHD might be all of the thoughts and ideas that are generated, according to Dr. H. Racing thoughts and/or having an abundance of ideas is common for those with ADHD. But how do you manage all of them?

But he cautions listeners to recognize that you can't accomplish every idea you have, so it's important to prioritize them.

Our guest today taught Ned's children when they were young and he can't say enough good things about her! Tracy Eisenberg is a 5th grade teacher at Shady Hill school in Cambridge, Massachusetts and knows how to teach neurodivergent kids, because she was one herself.

In this episode you'll hear Tracy's best advice for parents of school-aged children right now, how shame and disappointment affected her self-esteem growing up, and how an ADHD diagnosis in her 30's confirmed what she already knew.

As Tracy tells Ned, she's in the business of people, and helping her students become self-aware and achieve some agency in their lives is one of the things she loves about teaching!
