Learn to confidently evaluate and start treatment for ADHD in Spanish!
This series is based on a clinical encounter in Spanish with a girl who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, ADHD (trastorno de déficit de atención con hiperactividad / TDAH). The original dialogue was written in English by a listener, Dr. Craig Horn. Dr. Horn is a pediatrician who serves patients with ADHD. He shared the following with me in an email.
“Philosophically, ADHD can be a beautiful gift of high energy and creativity when developed properly. ADHD is not a disease, but simply who we are.”
I hope you find this perspective as helpful as I do as you learn more and talk to people about ADHD in Spanish.
We put this series together while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School in Guatemala. My friend Sonja Um-Siri (an interpreter) translated the clinical encounter on ADHD into Spanish with her teacher Francisco González Yojcóm. Then, we recorded the encounter with Francisco, my teacher, Elizabeth Cortez, and Eliza’s daughter, Nicole.
