People with ADHD can be asked to fit in to the structure of schools that often are teaching to the "left brains" of the world. Often work is rote and given in lecture format which is NOT how those with ADHD learn. Visualize fitting a round peg in a square hole.

But there are strategies that parents can use with their children and request of teachers to engage these learners!

ADHD learners are inquisitive but often lack the mental motivation and executive functioning to initiate a task and complete it among losing things and have an unorganized brain.

"They" use extra strength to "keep it all together".

The program speaker, Dr. Kelly Robinson, an ADHD coach, trainer and mentor, works with everyone from business executives to special education directors and individuals on building skills for success.

Everyone is welcome to attend a program offered by the Rhode Island chapter of CHADD (Children and Adults with ADHD) on Wednesday, September 5 at 7 pm in the Pine Room of Bradley Hospital, 1011 Veterans Memorial Pkwy East Providence, RI .
