I have had a very busy month so the monthly mentions are fewer this time round!
To attend online:
Did you know that October is ADHD Awareness Month? This month I am recommending you sign up early for the Beyond All Limits – ADHD Online Conference. Are you a parent, carer, teacher, adult or teen with ADHD in your life?
Do you want to learn more about ADHD and sick of spending hours searching through the internet? Do you want to learn from reputable specialists in ADHD?
Well, look no further! You have access to over 20 speakers and topics on ADHD!
Normally, you would pay hundreds of dollars to have a 30 - 45-minute consultation with an ADHD specialist, here you can see them in one spot and have any questions you have answered, all for less than the cost of just one specialist! And I am one of those specialists, talking all things neurofeedback.
This month’s read is a book called ‘He's Not Lazy: Empowering Your Son to Believe In Himself’ by Adam Price, a child psychologist. On the surface, capable teenage boys may look lazy. But dig a little deeper and you’ll often find conflicted boys who want to do well in middle and high school but are afraid to fail, and so do not try. This book can help you become an ally with your son, as he discovers greater self-confidence and accepts responsibility for his future. Full disclosure, I haven’t read this book entirely but the premise is amazing and Adam Price PhD comes highly recommended so I am crossing fingers this is going to be a winner!
I happened to be channel surfing the other night and this show came up on the ABC. It is called Catalyst and it takes you to the heart of the biggest science stories from Australia and around the world, revealing the latest understanding of how science affects our lives – from deep inside the human body to the furthest reaches of outer space. In this episode, titled ‘Staying Younger for Longer: Brain’, Dr Sarah McKay uncovers the revolutionary new science that promises to keep your brain healthy into old age - and uncovers the drugs that hope to defeat many of the diseases of ageing. Knowing what I do every day, you must know I am also going to recommend neurofeedback training with NeurOptimal!
