We Must Capture the Necessary Brilliance 
of people with ADHD

I want to introduce all who read my newsletter to an amazing resource for people who have ADHD but don't fit into the traditional college or grad school setting. It is called InventiveLabs.  

As Rick alludes in his TEDx talk, InventiveLabs is changing lives. I see InventiveLabs as the training ground for X-men and X-women, like the Xavier Institute.  Hugely needed, InventiveLabs can change the world by giving these young people the starting point they need. 

Capturing Necessary Brilliance, Learning Differences Unleashed! A TEDx Talk by InventiveLabs
Capturing Necessary Brilliance,
Learning Differences Unleashed!
A TEDx Talk by InventiveLabs

Located just north of Boston, occupying an entire floor of a renovated mill building, it is a breeding ground of new ideas, new companies, new visions, and dreams-come-true.

The brainchild of two successful entrepreneurs in their 50's, Rick Fiery and Tom Bergeron, Inventive Labs should be the first in a chain of such launching pads for entrepreneurs.  

Please join me in rising up and spreading this TEDx talk: tweet it, link it, email it, blog it, like it, comment on it.  This message needs to get out.

People with ADHD are not stupid or lazy! They think differently.  We must capture the Necessary Brilliance of people with ADHD by defining a new path for them to achieve success.

ADHD in Kids: What Many Parents and Teachers don't Understand but Need to Know 

Dr. Hallowell answers questions about how ADHD affects young people in this February 7, 2016 Washington Post article by Education editor Valerie Strauss.

This article is very helpful in understanding how ADHD manifests itself, its complexity, how it can be treated, and the fascinating paradoxes surrounding those with ADHD: They are hard to rein in, but they love to lead. They can't be counted on, but they are there in a crisis. They don't read the directions, but they are the first to put the toy together. They drive you crazy with their inability to follow through, but they charm the pants off you.

Live Far from a Hallowell Center or Outside the U.S.?

As I have grown my practice over the years, I have discovered the need to provide consulting and coaching services to many clients who reside outside of the U.S.  ADHD Coaching is a very specialized area and I often speak with people who have been frustrated by their diagnosis and the inability to find appropriate resources or expertise in their own communities.
