“What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew” with Dr. Sharon Saline, Clinical Psychologist, ADHD Expert, and Author

September 14, 2018

Dr. Saline is a licensed, clinical psychologist, who guides families from the maze of emotions, conflict and stress related to ADHD, toward successful dialog, interventions and connection.

Today, we're talking about her new book, What Your ADHD Child Wises You Knew.  There are many things that I liked about this book. But what I loved about it, is the way it’s framed.  Quotes and brief, personal stories from kids with ADHD are sprinkled throughout, to help us better understand the impact ADHD has on them, and, as you’ll hear, Dr. Saline does not shy away from addressing the emotional impact of ADHD.

I greatly enjoyed my conversation with Dr. Saline, and look forward to having more.  I'm certain she'll be back.
