The Shifting ADHD/ADD Lens: Moving From Disability to Ability

ParentEd Talks Replay


According to New York Times–bestselling author Edward Hallowell, M.D., Ed.D., learning differences can actually translate into superpowers, and changing our mindset about neurodiversity opens up a world of possibilities for our kids.

Dr. Hallowell has spent more than four decades treating kids diagnosed with ADHD, dyslexia and other learning differences. Through his work, he has revolutionized a strengths-based approach to not only identifying neurodiversity, but developing and celebrating the talents embedded in these syndromes. Watch his ParentEd Talks webinar (recorded March 2, 2023) to learn best strategies to support the power and gifts of kids with ADHD.
