“Some Things You Might Not Know
with Thomas E. Brown, Ph.D.
MONDAY, October 27th, 2014
9:00 – 10:00 p.m. Eastern
Recent research has brought many changes in our understanding of ADHD. This webinar will review some of those changes which can be helpful for adults with ADHD and parents of children with ADHD to understand because they can powerfully affect daily life.
We’ll hear from one of the foremost ADHD experts about:
- why we can focus well on a few things while have trouble focusing on other things we KNOW are important.
- how we have trouble managing our emotions, both positive and negative emotions due to problems with working memory.
- why we fail in high school, college or employment (even if we’re really smart) because of unrecognized emotional problems that prevent them from doing what’s necessary;
- why some women in the 45-55 year age range experience impairing ADHD-like problems with working memory, focus, and organization when they have never had such problems earlier in life.
