It is hard to be different from most other people; taking pride in your differences is the first step toward navigating the world successfully. ADHD and learning differences come with challenges, but adults and kids with these conditions also have a host of special talents, abilities, and gifts. It is time to band together to stare down stigma — one person at a time.
- “Always great to hear Dr. Hallowell & Dr. Dodson — true pioneers and champions of ADD/ADHD education, knowledge, and pride.“
- “I had no expectations listening to my first webinar on ADHD. But it was so insightful. I now have some tools to help my 7-year-old deal with his ADHD. And help me be a better parent to him. It was a reminder I shouldn’t be too hard on him and instead encourage him more. I look forward to the next one. Thank you so much for your work!“
- “Thank you for explaining about disclosure of ADHD. I made the mistake of telling everyone and am reaping the rewards daily. My son and I both have ADHD, and that makes our household different. I feel empowered after listening to the webinar and I haven’t felt that way in many years.”
