Approximately 10 percent of kids in the United States have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). Although we know ADD can persist into adulthood, we don't know how many adults are affected by it.

Host Charity Nebbe talks with Rick Green, the co-creator and one of the stars of Iowa Public Television's Red Green Show. He was also diagnosed with ADD as an adult. He wrote about how this diagnosis changed his life in "ADD Stole My Car Keys." Charity also talks with clinical psychologist Dr. Morgain Hall who treats adults with ADD. 

Charity Nebbe is the host of IPR's Talk of Iowa
