Inattentive ADHD Misdiagnosis with Dr. Michelle Frank

Dr. Michelle Frank is a clinical psychologist specializing in providing diagnostic and treatment services to individuals with ADHD. She joins us today to talk about inattentive ADHD and the struggles that come along by way of misdiagnosis.

Nikki shares the story of her own family’s struggle with getting an inattentive diagnosis and Michelle walks us through the difference between inattentive and predominately hyperactive types to give us a sense of how and why inattentive ADHD gets missed. In addition to coming away with a clearer picture of why the inattentive type is missed so often, Michelle offers us a set of questions to ask of ourselves, our children, and their teachers and caregivers that will help us uncover the hidden signals of inattentive ADHD.
