I founded ADHDandU because I believe that every child deserves the support to thrive. Currently, we're falling short as a nation in understanding ADHD. Kids with ADHD are often treated unfairly. This is so sad because these kids are some of the sweetest, smartest, most creative human beings I know! My mission is to cultivate the brilliance in every ADHD child.
I'm so glad you found your way to ADHD&U. I have specialized in pediatric neuropsychology for the last 20 years. That’s a fancy way of saying that I know a lot about learning. I’ve helped hundreds of children, adolescents, and young adults understand their unique learning styles so that they can reach their goals. I provide parent guidance and family therapy, too. I’m also a professional speaker who loves to raise awareness about ADHD. Check out my events page to see what I’ve been up to. If you would like for me to speak at your organization, please leave me a message on my contact page and I’ll get back with you! Last, but not least, I’m an avid knitter, yogi, and animal-lover who loves a good laugh.
I started this book and then couldn’t put it down. The author invites you to share her experience of raising a child with ADHD, and does so with a refreshing dose of humor, honesty and vulnerability. Her insight as both a parent and also a clinician offers a degree of wisdom that is both informative and compassionate- a hand that reaches out to say “you’re not alone, all will be well”. An accessible, compelling read, I recommend this to parents, educators, clinicians and anyone who seeks to better understand ADHD. – Jenny Jendro MSW, LICSW
Parents who have a child with an ADHD diagnosis and professionals working with students with ADHD would benefit from reading this book! Katherine provides an authentic, inspiring, and sensitive perspective about raising her son while highlighting challenges and moments of joy. I love her sense of humor and was laughing out loud at times. As a professional who works with middle school students in the public school system, I found her view as a parent incredibly supportive and inspiring. Holly S., Speech and Language Pathologist
Loved this book! It’s a compassionate and honest account of life with a child who has a unique way of being in the world. The author uses humor and self reflection to create an wonderful read. Read it in two days, didn’t want to stop reading. Laurie Schlosser
