Over a time span of only eight years, the national prevalence rate for Autism Spectrum Disorder has risen dramatically from 1 in 166 to 1 in 68. This change creates major societal, medical, and economic impacts, leading to questions of how and why the number of autism diagnoses in the United States has risen so sharply. This series, Autism Spectrum, is hosted by Paul Rokuskie and will explore the latest research, diagnostic approaches, patient challenges, and evolving roles of the health care professional in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
"Speaking of Psychology" is an audio podcast series highlighting some of the latest, most important and relevant psychological research being conducted today. Produced by the American Psychological Association, these podcasts will help listeners apply the science of psychology to their everyday lives.

The Super Science Happy Hour with Matt & Matt stars Matt Krause and Matt Johnson. Both Matts hold PhDs in Neuroscience from Yale University, have an active interest in many areas of science, and are devastatingly witty and handsome in person. The podcast is a mostly spontaneous conversion between Matt & Matt about various news items and issues in the science world. We know a lot about some of the topics we discuss and not very much about others, but we usually take some interesting digressions along the way. We’re relatively low-tech for now, but hopefully if anyone listens, we’ll get more polished over time. If you’d like to support the show, feel free to send us buckets of money and/or audio equipment. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

One of the common misconceptions about ADHD is that it occurs only in children. The reality is that ADHD can affect people of all ages. It is estimated that in the United States alone, nearly 8 million adults have ADHD. While inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactivity are the same hallmark features of both child and adult ADHD, these symptoms often manifest quite differently in adults. For example, hyperactivity in the child may be excessive running and climbing, while in the adult it is driving too fast. Impulsivity in the child can show up as blurting out answers in class, whereas for the adult interrupting colleagues during a business meeting would be likely. Recognition of the symptoms of ADHD that impact everyday life—at home, at work, and socially—is critical. The good news is that adult ADHD is a treatable medical condition, when recognized and addressed with an eye toward optimal management. Current data suggests that further continuing education and professional development is warranted to address clinical practice gaps related to diagnosis and management of ADHD in adults. In this neuroscienceCME Live and On Demand activity, expert faculty will explore best evidence to help clinicians achieve best practice as it relates to assessment, diagnosis, and management of adult ADHD. This activity also includes a special "After the Show" segment during which the faculty answers additional audience questions in an informal Q&A session.
