Are our top universities letting some of the brightest minds fall through the gap?
Join leading ADHD authority Dr Edward Hallowell M.D. in Cambridge for a workshop for academic staff, students and other members of Cambridge University.
The primary objective of the session is to help academic staff better understand the strengths (and challenges) of the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) condition. Following this session, attendees will better appreciate the unique strengths of ADHD students and gain practical tips and strategies to enable them better to manage their charges.
Dr Hallowell is one of the world’s leading authorities on ADHD, having written the seminal book 'Driven to Distraction'. He is a child and adult psychiatrist, NY Times bestselling author with over 21 published books, world-renowned speaker, and a former faculty member at Harvard Medical School. He has over 35 years’ experience of working with ADHD clients in addition to having ADHD (and dyslexia) himself. Dr Hallowell's books are the only 'notable publications' listed on the Wikipedia listing for ADHD!
Dr Hallowell will cover a full range of ADD-related issues, including:
- what it’s like to have ADD/ADHD
- the neuroscience behind the condition
- the student’s experience of ADHD
- how to help ADHD students in their academic performance – structure and tools
- why ADHDers can outperform 'neurotypicals'
There will be 'questions and answers' at the end of the session. Tickets are free but limited and registration is required.
