Ask the Expert Highlight
Helping Kids with ADHD/LD Overcome Chronic Stress: Parts 1 & 2
Featuring Jerome Schultz PhD

Part 1
Part 2

Does your child or teen have ADHD or a learning disability? Are you a great teacher but you just can’t seem to reach students with ADHD and/or LD in your class? This Ask the Expert Highlight could change the way you think about kids and put them (and you) back on the path to success—with less stress!

Clinical neuropsychologist  Dr. Jerome Schultz thinks we are overlooking the impact of toxic chronic stress on children. We know that ADHD and/or LD can often be associated with learning and behavioral difficulties in children at school and home. Few adults appreciate how often children with ADHD and/or LD experience or anticipate failure and embarrassment. This worry puts them in a chronic state of stress that gets in the way of effective learning. This two-part webinar can help you put the missing pieces of the puzzle into place.

Jerome Schultz, PhD, is on the faculty of Harvard Medical School in the Department of Psychiatry. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of children and young adults with LD, ADHD, and other special needs. Formerly a middle school special education teacher, Dr. Schultz maintains a private neuropsychology practice in Lexington, Massachusetts.
