Attention Different is a neurodiversity podcast dedicated to reframing ADHD. Hosts Aaron and Stephen shed light on living and even thriving with ADHD, offering new insights, strategies, and - how dare they - a bit of HUMOR, to leverage your ADHD for success. Our mission is to reclaim the label, not reinvent it, in order to understand our condition in more accurate and self-affirming ways. Labels can be stigmatizing, leading to shame, guilt, and despair. We believe that “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder" (ADHD), while a very real condition, has a tired and overly negative label. Aaron and Stephen are Attention Different and proud, so whether you are a young adult, a parent, or an ADHD advocate, subscribe to our podcast and join the movement today! We are ATTENTION DIFFERENT!! Hosts: Stephen Tonti and Aaron Smith Check out Attention Different's website: https://www.attentiondifferent.org

Great! New fave ADHD podcast. These guys speak and exist in a world where they consider people and things outside of themselves. Topple the patriarchy! Thanks so much for talking about the way the world of ADHD understanding has changed.
Highly recommend this podcast ! Love that it’s a authentic conversation with both of them learning from each other . I’ve leArnrd a lot about my adhd ! Thanks guys !this is the next joe Rogan show but about adhd!
So appreciate that this exists! I’m learning and enjoying listening in a way I haven’t with other ADHD podcasts. As a mother of ADHD boy, I love hearing from men who went through it as a child and are thriving as adults. The hosts bring great energy and balance of personalities.
