Today's question comes from 16-year old Emily who wrote:

I'm 16 years old and was diagnosed with ADHD in the third grade. I know that those of us with ADHD are often very good at multitasking… or so we think. But I’ve recently heard about the term "single-tasking," (focusing on doing one thing at a time) as being a better way to accomplish some tasks, which I totally struggle with. Can you talk about which method is better for neurodiverse brains, and how we can get better at focusing on one thing at a time? 

Today's question is answered by guest-expert, Dr. Maryellen Ruth, Director of the Diagnostic Center at Forman School.
