Book Me For a Great Talk On ADHD

MeMontageI have given countless talks on ADHD since I started Living ADDventure® almost 20 years ago.

These are always enjoyable for me, I love nothing more than to uplift people by talking about ADHD. For numerous people in the many audiences they have been life-changing.

In the middle of a talk in Pinetown a man yelled out that “no one gets me like you do.” His ageing mother cried on my shoulder afterwards.

At another time a woman told me she was confident that everyone else in her family had ADHD, and she was there to learn how to deal with them. Best thing ever was realising she had it too, her family is now thriving, not merely surviving!

If you want to learn more about this most common of all neurological conditions, please email me to arrange it.

A popular and cost effective format is to do a session with a school’s teachers during the day. Then in the evening I talk to the parents. This is a double whammy that brings about massive change very quickly.

I have talked in all the major centres and in many South-African dorps and towns, where farmers and other rural folk have attended.

Where there’s a need or desire to listen, I will go, we work out a way.

Always!

Talks & Workshops Overview

Living ADDventure® has trained more than 6 000 teachers, parents, teens and medical professionals since 2012 throughout South Africa.
ADHD workshops are an excellent source of information, while a talk only whets the appetite. Talks often raise more questions than the answers provided, but that too is good.
I often get questions from (usually) Moms who pepper their questions with words like, terrified, frightened, and scared, you get the picture.

This is never the fault of the Mom, it’s quite natural to have these feelings as a parent facing ADHD in their children. The best and only method to counter these feelings is to increase you knowledge. The Internet is full of data, not all of it true, some not even remotely factual. So beware, and use the idiom, “Just Say Know!”

I offer a variety of workshops ranging from 2 hours to 2 days in duration. There are workshops for parents, for teachers, for teens, and for medical professionals.

Workshops are offered wherever you are, no matter the city, town or village. In the past we have spent three days in a small town, training all the teachers, and the parents, we even managed to persuade a psychiatrist from the “big smoke” a few hundred kilometres away to join us, and train local medical professionals.

I advertise these workshops from time-to-time. But if you feel a need, organise your own with me. For instance, get a group of Moms together, rally local school teachers to your cause as well - the more people the less the cost.

Recommend to your child’s school that the teachers do a workshop while the parents attend a talk in the evening, or, both parents and teachers have separate workshops.
