Attention Talk Radio

The leading site for self-help Internet radio shows focusing on ADHD and ADD including managing symptoms of attention deficit disorder, adults with ADD, or adults who have children with ADHD. Our weekly Internet radio podcasts provide support for ADHD and ADD. Attention Talk Radio, hosted by attention coach Jeff Copper, is topical with an emphasis on paying attention to what is being paid attention to and what isn't being focused on (paid attention to). The point is to put a spotlight on ATTENTION, the role it plays in determining what is obvious, and how it drives outcomes and to shift your paradigm (what you pay attention to), opening your mind to new solutions. The show is designed to help adults and children (particularly those diagnosed with or impacted by attention deficit disorder or attention deficit disorder symptoms) in life or business who are stuck, overwhelmed, or frustrated. It will help adults and children with the symptoms of ADHD and ADD get unstuck and moving forward by helping to open their minds and pay attention to what works. Listen to Attention Talk Radio online for help and information for adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
