This film is a groundbreaking blend of humor, hope, and science that dispels the myths about a controversial disorder – Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Comedian Patrick McKenna seeks a diagnosis for ADHD and learns the facts from an impressive array of experts (some of whom have ADHD themselves!) including medical researchers, psychiatrists, psychologists, professors, and award-winning authors. Along the way, Patrick reveals how ADHD affects his life as a husband and father and even shares candid moments as he and his wife Janis work on the steps toward his diagnosis. Following the film, I facilitate a discussion and answer questions regarding ADHD.
