Nonetheless, it takes time, money, and effort to obtain the accommodations that will best work for you. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, we interview Romaney Berson (www.bfocusedcoaching.com) who has learned from the school of hard knocks the ins and outs of navigating the system.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder isn't a deficit of attention but rather a self-regulation issue. Attention, emotions, and bodily movement are all things one must self-regulate but are not always an easy task for those with ADHD. In this episode, we interview Dr. David Nowell (www.drnowell.com) on emotional self-regulation, the brain's automatic response in the face of a threat, the impact of that threat on those with ADHD, and the challenges of overriding the automatic response. If you've got ADHD, struggle with emotions or anger, or find yourself paralyzed, you won't want to miss this insightful interview.
