Does your child have difficulty starting or completing homework? Does he seem “addicted” to video games? Does she struggle with organization and focus?

Has your child been diagnosed or treated for ADHD, or do you or his teachers strongly suspect that he might have symptoms?

Join us at The Hyannis Public Library on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 11 a. m. when neuropsychologist Dr. David Nowell will present “A Parent’s ADHD Overview: 11 Strategies for Common Home and School Challenges.”

This program is free and open to the public but registration is required no later than April 10 by emailing hyannislibrary101@gmail.com or by calling 508-775-2280.

This interactive, high-energy, and practical introduction to ADHD will help parents and others discover practical solutions for managing some of the more common ADHD-related problems at home and school. Dr. Nowell will tell you about current brain research and its impact on pharmaceutical and other interventions for ADHD, and you are encouraged to bring your specific questions to the program.

David D. Nowell, Ph.D., is a clinical neuropsychologist who teaches workshops internationally. His passion for teaching has its roots in his work with disorders that may limit an individual’s ability to apply self-understanding to day-to-day organization and planning. A unique aspect of David’s clinical work is his attention to body-based felt experience – what success or happiness “feel like.”
