    90 | ADHD with Laurie Peterson

    90 | ADHD with Laurie Peterson

    This episode of That Music Podcast is very near and dear to my heart as I sat down with Laurie Peterson to dive into ADHD, how it can affect students, learners, adults, and some strategies we can use in our classrooms.

    Laurie Peterson is the Founder and Executive Director of Diagnostic Learning Services and eDiagnostic Learning. Laurie attended the University of Arkansas and received her Bachelor’s degree in Special Education in 1993. After spending 7 years in the classroom, she returned to school and received a Master’s degree from Texas Woman’s University in Special Education with an emphasis on assessment which began her career as an Educational Diagnostician. Laurie returned to school again in 2009 and obtained a second Master’s degree in Professional Counseling.

    Laurie spent another 6 years evaluating students in the public school system before realizing the tremendous need for assessments that understand and identify all the needs of the student and not what is best for the school.Through the years of helping and assessing students from elementary age to college and adulthood, Laurie has become a well-respected and sought-after voice in helping students and adults. She enjoys the chances she has been afforded to speak publicly to groups and schools to share how they can better understand the needs of their students when it comes to learning disabilities such as Dyslexia and ADHD. Laurie serves on the Executive Board for the North Texas chapter of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD)

Great show!

I really appreciate this podcast. The episodes are packed with information, but in smaller chunks. For a person like me who struggles with paying attention it is perfect!
