November 2012 Monthly Ed Tip!

 

ADHD information added

For those seeking insights into & trying to understand ADHD, read a synopsis of a conference given by Ed Hallowell, one of the world’s leading ADHD experts, on the history of AD/HD in America or in the words of Lady Gaga “we were born this way" from her song Born This Way. In addition, a unique ADHD timeline has been added with President Lincoln wife and son included in the timeline.

 

Click on Hallowell/Lady Gaga & Timeline in the menu. Check it out and let me know what you think. I guarantee you will have an insightful, useful, but uncommon perceptive into ADHD after reading Ed Hallowell’s summary.

 

Have a great month!
