Watch: Dr. Aaron Dodini on being an ADHD doctor & parent
"Why is it so hard to diagnose ADHD?"
This question, posed by interviewer Dr. Samantha Hiew , has no simple answer. With over 20 years of experience in the ADHD treatment space, interviewee Dr. Aaron Dodini is well-equipped to explain exactly why ADHD evaluations can be so complex—and how to improve the experience for those being evaluated for ADHD across diverse backgrounds.
Dr. Dodini's history with ADHD is both professional and personal. His daughter, Sydney, was diagnosed as an adult, an experience she recounts in our earlier interview here. You can also watch Dr. Hiew's interview with Dr. Dodini and Sydney together here.
In this video, Dr. Dodini recounts his own experience with Sydney's diagnosis, as well as the realities others experience in their own ADHD evaluations. He and Dr. Hiew discuss the challenges people face as well as the best path forward, including using objective measures such as QbTest and other top tips for other parents of neurodivergent children.
Dr. Dodini's wealth of experiences, stories, and outlooks on the state of treatment make this interview a must-watch. A special thanks to both Dr. Dodini and Dr. Hiew for lending their expertise to this discussion.
