ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that impairs the brain’s executive functions. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 9.4% of children have been diagnosed with having ADHD. The disorder is often mistaken for a behavior disorder, mental illness, and a specific learning disability; it impacts aspects of development, such as learning, social, motor, and coping skills. People with ADHD have trouble with impulse control, focusing, and organization.

“Fusion’s webinars are intended to support families as they navigate the complexities of parenting in a world that increasingly competes for our attention,” said Matthew Shea, Director of Outreach for Fusion Academy Burlington. “We are grateful to Dr. Hallowell for sharing his expertise, which we hope strengthen families’ bonds and gain a better understanding of how to embrace and manage ADHD.”
