Ep 09. The Truth About Attention 
Regulation (Why ADHD is Poorly Named)

ADHD has long been explained as a deficit of attention, but many think that this is a faulty description.

 It's not that people with ADHD can't focus, it's that we can't always control what  we focus on or when/ how long  we focus (this is attention regulation).
