Dr. Maucieri regularly publishes and presents research on ADHD, as well as brain injury and stroke. At Chicago ADHD Clinic LLC, he focuses on diagnostic testing and individual adult psychotherapy for ADHD, as well as learning disabilities, strokes, brain injuries, anxiety, depression, and dementia.

It explores the unique relationship problems related to adult ADHD, and how to address these problems therapeutically. Nationally-recognized ADHD expert and author Dr. Ed Hallowell described the book as, “a treasure trove of clinical facts, pearls of wisdom, and theories sure to enrich, inform, and energize the practice of anyone who works couples.”
