November 12 ADHD



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!




News

In case you get bored with the lazy days of summer and want to get a jump preparing for the coming school year, I added to Stuff4Educators a section called How to Study Better based on research from Harvard Medical School that highlights four science-backed ways towards better learning (Hint: drop the highlighter). Additionally, I posted a YouTube video under exercise from the Dana Foundation that won the Northwest Emmy award called Exercise and the Brain that explores the benefits of exercise on the brain and learning. Finally, some books that I have read this past year and found to be stimulating are listed.
