What listeners are saying:
"One of the best ADDitude presentations I've attended! I especially liked the mother/daughter tag team approach. Kudos to mom and to Katie."
"Great presentation! As a parent of two kids with ADHD, it was encouraging to hear Katie talk about how she is doing in college. Thank you!"
"This mother-daughter duo was great! Thoroughly enjoyed their dialogue. Please bring them back!"
"I never heard of the "mourning process" before. Now that I have a name for what I'm going through, hopefully I can learn to accept it and move on. Great job Katie, you should be very proud of yourself!!"
"Thank you for today's presentation. It is very valuable to hear from kids/young adults with disabilities. As parents, we try to find programs, resources, and anything else that will help our children, so hearing what has worked or not worked for others is very helpful."
