Dr Ed Hallowell and ADHD books

Dr. Ed Hallowell, Web,  Twitter,  Facebook,  Youtube has ADHD has written many books on ADHD, taught at Harvard Medical school and is also a great speaker who talks about the challenges AND the positives of ADHD.

Given the name of my first blog, Adult ADD Strengths, I appreciate his role as the pioneer of those who talk about the positives of ADHD, when many just see 99% pathology in us ADDers and not much else.

I recommend his books on ADHD to all my adult ADHD coaching clients and the members of my Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group.

Here’s a draft proposal for your consideration. I’m an adult ADHD coach who has ADHD and runs the non-profit Vancouver Adult ADHD Support group and is on the board of CHADD Vancouver. Tell me what you think of these ideas in the comments at the end of this post.

We need to stop the discrimination and neglect of adults and children with ADHD in BC. While we have some excellent medical professional who learned about ADHD on their own time and dime, sadly there are too few medical professionals that are properly trained in diagnosing and treating ADHD in adults and children in BC.
