This week, we examine the link between executive function deficits in ADHD and Autism, the differences between ADHD identified in childhood versus adulthood, and how best to test the connection between ADHD symptoms and depression.

While these latest findings are compelling, they are not without their controversies. So we couldn’t end the discussion without covering causation versus correlation and the issue of methodical limitations in academic papers.

Tune in to tackle the big topics in the world of ADHD this week!
