I recently had an opportunity to interview Dr. Thomas E. Brown about his new book, A New Understanding of ADHD in Children & Adults: Executive Function Impairments (Routledge, 2013). In this book, Dr. Brown proposes a new model of ADHD. This model uses research data to explain that ADHD impairments are actually due to problems in the development of the brain’s executive functions.
The interview took place on my radio show, Practical ADHD Strategies. You can listen in the player below.
The book has already received some great reviews…
“This book presents a highly useful and current summation of the major findings concerning ADHD and the role of executive functioning in it. Clinicians, students, and laypeople will find here much valuable informationon the disorder, its assessment and diagnosis, and its management.” ~Russell A. Barkley, PhD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics, Medical University of South Carolina
“A very intriguing read. Dr. Brown skillfully examines the diverse nature of executive functions, ADHD, and their overlap.” ~Timothy E. Wilens, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, and Director of Substance Abuse Services, Massachusetts General Hospital
