Sensory Processing and ADHD: I can't hear you, my socks are wet [Research Recap]

Ever think about how much stimuli you process in one day? Estimates put this at millions of bits of information per second, but we consciously notice less than a hundred. Come learn why this hidden processing cost can be a serious concern for ADHD'ers and discover what to do about it. See you inside...
