        Dr Ned Hallowell to Speak at ADHD Foundation FREE Event

        The ADHD Foundation is delighted to be hosting a FREE webinar with New York Times bestselling author, Dr Ned Hallowell, to celebrate the launch of his new book ADHD 2.0: New Science and Strategies for Thriving with Distraction from Childhood through Adulthood.

        Whilst most people are familiar with ADHD or know someone who may have it, the many benefits of being neurodiverse have been lost in public discussion. From Simone Biles and Steve Jobs, to Emma Watson and Albert Einstein, many hugely successful public figures have ADHD and even attribute their success and achievements to their ADHD.

        Dr. Ned Hallowell has spent the past four decades helping thousands of adults and children live happy and productive lives through his strength-based approach to neurodiversity, and has ADHD and dyslexia himself. Ned lives by the philosophy: “I don’t treat disabilities, I unwrap gifts”.

        In his latest book, ADHD 2.0, Ned Hallowell and John Ratey draw on the latest science to provide both children and adults a plan for minimising the downside and maximising the benefits of ADHD at any age. As inspiring as it is practical, ADHD 2.0 will help you tap into the power of this mercurial condition and find the key that unlocks potential.

        In discussion with CEO of the ADHD Foundation, Dr Ned Hallowell will give us an insight into the key findings of his latest book, and lead a Q&A session with our audience. If you have ADHD, or live around ADHD, this one-off and free event is not to be missed.  

        Edward (Ned) Hallowell, M.D. is a board-certified child and adult psychiatrist and world authority on ADHD. He is a graduate of Harvard College and Tulane Medical School, and was a Harvard Medical School faculty member for 21 years. He is the Founder of The Hallowell ADHD Centers in Boston MetroWest, New York City, San Francisco, Palo Alto and Seattle.
