Camp for siblings (with or without ADHD) and returning graduates too!


Dr Hallowell and Rob Himburg have created a one-of-a-kind weeklong camp for families. Children and parents attend separate morning sessions throughout the week, then have the afternoon and evenings to spend together. Dr Hallowell works with the parents and Rob works with the children. Parents participate in a highly interactive discussion-based seminar with Dr Hallowell, while the children work and play in a highly experiential adventure learning program created by Rob. The combination of the parallel programs can have an exponential growth effect for families – transforming past patterns and opening the way for better communication, understanding and connection. An additional children’s camp is also available for siblings.  Learn more and register here.


FOR ADULTS – Cape Cod Institute – celebrating their 40th Anniversary Season in 2019!

August 12 – 16, 2019, Cape Cod – My Cape Cod Institute course is great for people who have ADHD or have an interest in ADHD (teachers, parents, spouses) and professionals can get continuing education credit. The course is rooted in my hallmark strength-based approach, meaning that I see ADHD as a trait, not a disorder, which, if managed properly can become a true asset, as it has become for me. If managed poorly, though, it can be a terrible problem. 
This one-week CE course is offered through the Cape Cod Institute and interweaves advanced material and innovative new treatments with introductory information. It will explore the entire world of ADHD in its human as well as its clinical and scientific dimensions. It will provide a solid, practical basis for understanding ADHD at all ages in all contexts.
The course is for adults only, although many people bring their families for the week. It runs mornings from 9 – noon; 3 hours with Dr. Hallowell and the rest of the day on the beach, on a sailboat, or curled up with a book.

The Summer Vacation: Smart Strategies for Students with ADHD

What can your child accomplish in the coming summer months to start the new academic year in good shape?

  1. Your child or adolescent should review the year with you, his/her counselor, or coach at the Hallowell Center. The last thing he or she wants to do is dwell on his or her challenges, but he or she does not want to forget the specifics or have to dig up papers and marks in the Fall to see what went well and what didn’t.
  2. See if he or she can isolate WHY certain subjects and activities were successful so the pattern can be continued in the coming year.
  3. If some subjects, activities, or settings presented challenges, make a list of these and brainstorm with help to prevent the same occurrences in the coming academic year.
  4. Think about technology. No more excuses about losing assignments, forgetting deadlines or losing slips of paper! Try it out over the summer so you will be all ready for the fall. See if he/she can learn to use it and give it a try.
