ADHD Awareness Week 2012: “Keeping it simple”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that as of 2011, 9.5 percent of U.S. children have been diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The Harvard/NIMH National Comorbidity Survey Replication found in 2006 that 4.4 percent of U.S. adults ages 18-44 experience symptoms and disability related to ADHD.
While the statistics are simple to grasp, understanding the intricacies of ADHD can be far more daunting.
That’s where ADHD expert (and diagnosed adult) Ben Glenn comes in. Glenn speaks to ADHD with a revolutionary approach: Making it easy to understand.
The author of four books on ADHD, including the upcoming release Simple Answers to Commonly Asked Questions About ADHD, Glenn has traveled extensively throughout the country and the globe,
- Explaining ADHD in a comprehensive and digestible manner for kids and adults
- Dispelling myths and misunderstandings
- Teaching both students and educators how to best cope with ADHD in the classroom and at home
In addition, Glenn is available to discuss:
- Signs and symptoms your child may have ADHD
- Is ADHD over-diagnosed?
- The peaks and pitfalls of ADHD
- His own experience with dyslexia and ADHD
