Dr. Hallowell's ADHD Family Summer Camp

What makes this camp unique is that the parents come with their children!  

Not only do the parents get to have time with their kids, but the parents also meet other parents who are dealing with the same issues, while kids meet other kids who also have the fascinating trait called ADHD.

Even though it is chilly January where I am, near Boston, I want to devote this Note from Ned to the unique summer camp I've been running wi
th Rob Himburg and my wife, Sue, for 10 years now.  

Spanning just under one week, Sunday evening until Friday noon, July 17 - July 22, this camp is a one-of-a-kind experience.  I am not a marketer by training or inclination, but I am someone who loves to share good news and great ideas, so I really want you to know about this camp if you have a child--or a spouse--with ADHD.
Training Attention 

"Atentiv is, in my opinion, the most promising non-medication technology on the horizon for the training of attention." - Dr. Hallowell 

For the past 5 years I've worked with a company named Atentiv to research and develop a promising new product that trains attention and helps regulate impulse control.  

When the principal of the company, Eric Gordon, a man experienced in developing medical technologies, approached me in 2011 about his new product, I was deeply skeptical.  People come to me all the time with new products, the majority of which cannot deliver on what they promise.

However, as Eric persisted and showed me solid results from early studies, I decided to get involved.  Full disclosure, I am now a very minor stockholder in the company and am paid a monthly retainer to consult and help with research.

Atentiv is, in my opinion, the most promising non-medication technology on the horizon for the training of attention.  I see its applicability someday not only for ADHD, but for a far broader audience, namely, the many millions of people of all ages who would like a simple means of increasing their ability to attend.  

I asked Eric to write about Atentiv for my newsletter, and the following is what he wrote:

"There has been a lot of recent publicity about companies with 'brain training games' that have made various unfounded claims about 'healing the brain' using our natural brain development process - the phenomenon called neuroplasticity. These claims have promised to help users perform better in school, home and work. Some of these companies have promised to fix ADHD, memory loss, dementia and reduce or delay cognitive impairment associated with age, including Alzheimer's disease and other serious mental health conditions.

Dr. Hallowell's New Podcast

It's so gratifying any time we can play a role, big or small, in helping people free themselves from the distractions and compulsions of ADHD. 

We're excited to announce that we'll soon be spreading our message, observations and insights in a new medium: podcasting! In the early part of the new year, we will be launching a new podcast series called Distraction, a common and important theme to those who know Dr. Hallowell's work. We'll explore how we are all are driven to distraction in this crazy-busy world, and the strategies and tactics you can use to turn modern problems into new-found strengths. Along the way, we'll offer real-world advice and meet some fascinating guests who will share their experiences and methods of coping. Our website should be up any day, but follow us on Twitter and Facebook in the meantime.  If you'd like to be part of the show, have a question or topic you'd like us to cover, or would like to share your personal story, call us at 844-552-6663 or email us at producer@DistractionPodcast.com.
