Dr. Hallowell responds to a listener question we received recently about ADHD coaches for kids. We think the self-proclaimed “disorganized parent” who reached out will be surprised to hear Ned’s answer!
Understood.org is a non-profit organization focused on helping parents whose children, ages 3-20, struggle with learning and attention issues. Dr. Hallowell spoke with Kevin Hager, Managing Director of Understood, and Amanda Morin, Content Development Manager for the organization about all of the resources available on their website and what kind of help they can offer parents of children who learn differently.
From ADHD to dyslexia, dyspraxia, executive function issues, nonverbal learning issues, organization struggles and much, much more Understood is an invaluable, free resource with videos, articles and research all tailored to your child’s age, gender and issues. Listen to this informative episode and then check out all of the information at your fingertips on this wonderful website.

Peter Shankman is a well known entrepreneur, author and host of the highly popular podcast, Faster than Normal. As you’ll hear in this episode, Peter truly is faster than normal, as he talks faster than anyone we’ve had on the show thus far! But for good reason– he’s got a ton to say about the positive side of ADHD!
He recently called in to Distraction to share a few stories with Dr. Hallowell, including the unbelievable tale of how he wrote his bestselling book Zombie Loyalists. It’s a highly unusual story that underscores the belief that people with ADHD can and should develop their own way of doing things. If you’d like to contact Peter, send an email to [email protected]
