This week our guest host, René Brooks answers YOUR questions about ADHD!
Today’s discussion includes questions from our listeners about navigating the ups and downs of romantic relationships when both partners have ADHD (something René has personally experienced) and how parents can prioritize the best ways to help newly-diagnosed ADHD kids. René points out that just because your child is doing okay in school, doesn’t mean everything is okay. She shares a few insights that parents should be aware of outside of academics.

René Brooks is guest-hosting Distraction through November and December! René is an ADHD coach, writer and advocate who also has ADHD herself. From Black Girl, Lost Keys website: René Brooks is a late-life ADHD success story. After being diagnosed 3 times as a child (7, 11 and 25) she was finally able to get the treatment she deserved. René decided that her passion for helping others should be put toward people with this disorder who are struggling in silence or shame. She started Black Girl, Lost Keys to empower Black women with ADHD and show them how to live well with the condition.
