Dr. Karin Varblow, a pediatrician who specializes in treating children with ADHD, talks about how she developed her Know/Go model for understanding how the ADHD brain works.
In addition to outlining how this can help all of us understand and support children who have ADHD, she explains how this helps us have more empathy for them and use more effective strategies in our daily lives with them.
More information about Dr. Varblow can be found at her website, www.drkarinmd.com.
She also recommends (and I second) folks who are interested in learning more about ADHD to go to CHADD’s website. CHADD stands for Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and is an organization that provides education, support and advocacy for individuals with ADHD, as well as for their families. Their web site is www.chadd.org.
