ADHD 2.0—New Science and Essential Strategies for Thriving with Distraction

Dr. Ned Hallowell, keynote
What if instead of thinking of ADHD as a deficit and a disorder, we saw it for what it really is? A way of being in the world which, with the right support, can be a wonderful way of being. Dr. Hallowell will share recent research developments, including innovations that give a clearer understanding of the ADHD brain in action and draw on the latest science to provide parents, educators, and clinicians a plan for minimizing the downside and maximizing the benefits of ADHD at any age.

Keynote followed by breakout sessions for clinicians, educators and parents/caregivers. Two breakout sessions provided by Dr. Hallowell.
Conference: $30 per person

Mastering the Method of Raising Joyful, Fulfilled ADHD Children
Dr. Ned Hallowell
All parents want to raise their children in such a way that they will achieve lifetime happiness. Not superficial happiness, but joy, satisfaction, fulfillment, and longevity. Now there is an evidence-based reliable method to do just that. The old advice of work hard, get high grades, win trophies and go to a top university is unreliable and not possible for everyone. It is also not supported by the latest and most robust research. Dr Hallowell outlines a 5-step method that really works and that every parent can master. If you take the brief time it takes to learn this method, you will free yourself from old and destructive myths and give yourself and your children the everlasting benefits of the best possible childhood.

Ways to Bring Out the Best in Your ADHD Students
Dr. Ned Hallowell
Dr. Hallowell will draw upon his 40+ years of clinical experience in diagnosing and treating ADHD children of all ages and share what he's found works best to bring out the best. Building on his strength-based model, thru which instead of treating disorders he helps individuals unwrap their gifts, Dr. Hallowell will describe how you can help your students move past the stigma that prevents progress and growth, and instead learn how to sense, reveal, and tap into the sparkle and strength your students with ADHD invariably possess.
