Patients and clinicians who rely on the DSM-V alone tend to overlook these defining features of ADHD:

  1. an interest-based nervous system
  2. rejection sensitive dysphoria
  3. intense emotional responsiveness

Here, leading ADHD expert William Dodson, M.D., explains how these core features affect the daily life of individuals with ADHD, and how they often complicate diagnoses and treatment plans.

Listener testimonials:
