Changing Your Perspective on ADHD

How easily the gifts of ADHD are lost on a child amid negative comments from doctors, teachers, and even loving but frustrated parents. I believe that ADHD is too often misunderstood and mistreated because it is mislabeled as only a “disability.” In truth, practical strength-based techniques can put the talents, charms, and positive essence of children with ADHD ahead of any presumed shortcomings. 

My best advice for parents, teachers or anyone who knows a child or adult with ADHD is to take action now by finding new and different ways to support them. So if you know a child or adult with ADHD, I invite you to learn how to change your perspective on ADHD by joining my Twitter chat with understood.org on Wednesday, June 28, 2017, 12-12:30 PM EST.

This is completely free. Learn more and RSVP for a reminder HERE!

Thank you!
