Based upon the latest research, Dr. Hallowell has developed a simple, five-step process that adults can easily use to make sure children have the right kind of childhood, the kind of childhood that will lead to happiness later on, as well as moral behavior, an attitude of cooperation, and a zest for life.  Learn how to help children get the best out of life, while avoiding the dangers that lurk along the way.  The presentation will take into account how having learning and attention difficulties influences the route toward happiness and fulfillment and offer strategies to help create a good route.

SUPERPARENTING FOR ADD:  An Innovative Approach to Raising Your Distracted Child

With decades of experience working with ADD children, Dr. Edward Hallowell—a pediatric psychiatric clinician, father of two ADD children, and himself an adult with ADD—understands how easily the gifts of this condition are lost on a child amid negative comments from doctors, teachers, and even loving but frustrated parents. Hallowell has long argued that ADD is too often misunderstood, mistreated, and mislabeled as a “disability.”   The practical strength-based techniques Drs. Hallowell will present put the talents, charms, and positive essence of your child ahead of any presumed shortcomings. In his presentation he will offer a specific game plan that includes: unconditional love, viewing the mirror traits, and the cycle of excellence.

Dr. Hallowell understands the real and everyday challenges facing parents of an ADD child both at home and at school of an ADD. Join him as he shows you how to unwrap the wonderful, surprising gifts of ADD and turns what is too often labeled a lifelong disability into a lifelong blessing.
