About our speaker: Dr. Edward Hallowell, M.D., Ed.D.
A specialist in learning differences, Dr. Hallowell’s groundbreaking books, "Driven to Distraction" and "Delivered From Distraction" (both co-authored with Dr. John Ratey), brought Attention Deficit Disorder to the attention of the general public and have sold millions of copies. With decades of experience working with people who have ADHD, Dr. Hallowell has long argued that the disorder is too often misunderstood, mistreated and mislabeled as a “disability” and that the gifts of this condition are easily overlooked or undervalued.
He is also a revered authority on lifelong personal betterment and fulfillment and has authored 18 books on various psychological topics, including the power of the human connection; the childhood roots of happiness; how to manage your “crazy busy” life; how to deal with worry; how to forgive; and how to run organizations so that every employee achieves at his or her peak performance.
