What is ADHD and what it isn't, a talk with Ken Kilbride, CEO of ADHD Ireland
14 September 2022

*Apologies there is some background noise in this podcast

This talk for parents of children with ADHD and adults with ADHD alike will explain what is ADHD and will also explode some of the popular myths and misconceptions around this condition, which affects 5% of the population. Think of it as a crash course in the condition!

Ken Kilbride is the CEO at ADHD Ireland. Ken has over 25 years experience in senior management positions in a wide range of both very large and very small not for profit organisations in Ireland. His role with ADHD Ireland is to enact the vision and strategy of the Board, and in the words of Captain James T Kirk take this ADHD organisation to where no ADHD organisation has ever been before!

Part of ASC Let’s Talk series 2022:  Talks on understanding and supporting those with additional needs.
