Music lights up the ADHD brain. Research shows that rhythm, melody, and tempo activate attention and focus. Moving to music helps organize the brain. Playing music can enhance sustained attention, impulse control, decision-making and planning, not to mention boosting self-esteem. Active music making engages the whole brain.

Here, learn the most effective ways parents can use music to help their child learn more at school, improve self-confidence, and achieve life goals.  In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The latest research on how music benefits the ADHD brain
  • How music can help your child overcome ADHD-related challenges
  • How to create a music library that sparks and/or soothes your child’s brain
  • Resources for finding music therapists who will work with your child’s learning style
