Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is diagnosed subjectively, which is imprecise, leads to misdiagnosis, and many other problems. The industry has longed for a definitive test to diagnose the condition on a black-and-white basis. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, attention and ADHD coach Jeff Copper (http://digcoaching.com) interviews Dr. Kenneth Blum on some new technology that could identify those who are at high risk of having ADHD and other addictive-type conditions based on an individual’s genes. While the test isn’t definitive, it is an exciting step towards identification and treatment. If you are in the ADHD community, tune in and keep current as we bring the future to today.
