Our Students’ Gifts…A Focus on ADHD

Learners arrive to us each day with creative and intellectual gifts. One of the most treasured components of our work lies in uncovering those unique gifts.  Sometimes, learners face obstacles that make discovering & celebrating those gifts a bit more challenging…but what could be more gratifying than helping kids uncover their talents?

Our podcast guest this week has extraordinary gifts.  An author/expert on ADHD, Kevin Roberts also supports those with cyber addictions.  In fact, Kevin was featured in a compelling 20/20 episode on gaming and screen addiction.  Kevin is both gifted intellectually…he speaks several languages…AND he has ADHD AND he was a former gaming addict. A captivating speaker, Kevin supports educators and families with strategies for ADHD and cyber addiction.  So, get off those games and social media and listen up!
