The Hidden Layers of ADHD: The Underlying Complexities of ADHD, and Their Powerful Effect on Your Parenting Success

There’s so much more to ADHD than the list of symptoms clinicians use to diagnose the condition. Yet, parents are rarely, if ever, clued in on all these additional layers upon diagnosis. In fact, it’s only recently that the additional complexities were undeniably linked to ADHD.
In The Hidden Layers of ADHD, Williams dives deep below the surface to explore the notion that ADHD is like an iceberg. This concept of hidden layers beneath the surface — and the danger of not detecting them, and changing your course because of them — aptly illustrates just how critical the acknowledgement of these underlying complexities is to succeeding at this special parenthood, and creating success for your child.
