Dr. Kimberly Douglass joins this episode to discuss what is behind the difficulties of receiving a diagnosis of ADHD for Black Americans. She discusses how symptoms in Black children are ignored as we look at issues such as the school to prison pipleline, the racial and ethnic disparities across the entire healthcare spectrum, implicit bias with diagnosing Black Americans, community stigma and more. Dr. Douglass has formed an encouraging community with her presence on TikTok (drkimberlydouglass) where she shares her knowledge of all things Neurodivergence ranging from Autism to needs of executive functioning to the reminders we all need to hear that we are whole today and deserving of quality of life.
