In Praise of Learning Differences: Focusing on Strengths and Abilities

ParentMap Live Replay

Changing our mindset about learning differences opens up a world of possibilities for our kids. Just ask New York Times-bestselling author Dr. Edward Hallowell, who transformed the way we see ADHD, recharacterizing the trait from being a challenge to a superpower.

At this free ParentMap Live talk Dr. Hallowell shares how parents can help kids with ADHD, dyslexia and other syndromes harness their strengths; identify and celebrate their kid’s talents; tap the transformative power of a creative outlet for their child; and understand the latest brain science behind ADHD/ADD.

About the speaker

Ned Hallowell headshotA specialist in atypical learning, Dr. Hallowell’s groundbreaking books “Driven to Distraction” and “Delivered From Distraction” (co-authored with John Ratey, M.D.) brought attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder to the attention of the general public and have sold millions of copies. After 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.
