For many people, the phrase "brain training" sparks thoughts of online games and apps, but Dr. Amy Moore provides the 1-on-1 human alternative for struggling learners. In this episode of Hey! I Want Your Job, she speaks with Michele about one of the most common concerns posed by parents of an excitable kiddo: "I think my child has ADHD. Now what?!" Armed with her extensive credentials and experience, along with an empathetic approach as an ADHD Warrior herself, Dr. Moore breaks down some of the common misconceptions regarding this condition. She also speaks on the subject of why some parents might choose to serve as a partner in their child's brain-training program, why some elect to leave it entirely up to the pros, and why either approach is completely a-okay!
