Have your child take the Kolbe Y™ Index today!A Recommendation from Dr. Hallowell: Kathy Kolbe’s ideas about a person’s instinctual way of solving problems and approaching life are truly groundbreaking. I urge everyone to take her simple self-assessment test and find what your child’s “conative” profile is. You’ll be amazed at how useful this can be. And once you discover your child’s profile, take the adult test and find out your own. And your spouse’s. And, it would be really helpful if your teacher would take the test, too. You can read more about the Kolbe methods below and in my new book, Superparenting for ADD.

KOLBE Y INDEX: Discover and nurture your child’s instinctive strengths with the Kolbe Y™ Index. Developed by noted educator and theorist Kathy Kolbe, the Kolbe Y Index provides a powerful validation of a child’s individual, innate talents. Watch self-confidence soar, conflict subside, school performance improve as your child learns the power of solving problems in unique and creative ways. Have your child take the Kolbe Y™ Index today!

Note: we will get credit for every test taken referred by our site

Dr. Hallowell’s Books

BUZZ: A Year of Paying Attention by Kathy Elison.  It is a first-person account of a year in the life of a mom raising a boy who has ADHD. Written by Pulitzer-Prize winning author, Katherine Ellison, this book is both extremely intelligent AND extremely engaging. You will laugh, cry, learn, and gain strength as you read this important new contribution to the literature of ADHD. ADHD aside, it is a memorable book on its own. I hope you will not only read the book, but help keep its visibility high by talking it up amongst your friends.
