Meet the Scientist - September 2016

When supported through the period of maximum vulnerability, adolescence, ADHD outcomes can be brilliant. To do so, we must differentiate the few truly irreversible mistakes, which must be avoided to the maximum extent possible, and all other difficulties, all of which represent learning opportunities.
