What others are saying about the course...
“I listened to the first class on Minimizing ADHD Medication Madness. Thank you, I loved it! You made it playful and fun which helped me a lot to have an understanding of the neurons and how the brain works. You also clarified the neurotransmitter piece how it’s missing or not functioning well. This information will definitely help me in my coaching practice!” ~ Naima Laraki, NL Coach, Ottawa, Canada
“Just wanted to let you know that I LOVE the medications classes! They have been very helpful in helping me sift through the conversation I am rehearsing in my head for my child as we embark on a medication adjustment.” ~ K.B. Parent of an 11 year old with ADHD
“I loved tonight’s class, and I am SO glad I signed up for this series! I appreciate the depth of knowledge provided here. For some time now, I have been looking for a more complete understanding of the “nitty-gritty” workings of the neurotransmitters and how they are impacted by medications. I’m looking forward to the layers that will be added in upcoming classes. I’m also looking forward to being able to have an intelligent, informed conversation with my doctor as we look at options for medication.
Your scientific info was simplified but not dumbed-down, and I appreciate how tricky that is. Your analogies really helped make the concepts clear. As another caller noted, not only is this helpful for my own understanding, but will be helpful for me to use when speaking to parents and children. As a teacher, I also appreciate your teaching style of giving the overview of where we’re headed and frequent re-caps and stopping for questions on specific sections. You also addressed different learning styles within your presentation. I know the deliberate planning that goes into providing different access points for people… well done, Laurie!” ~ Anne Marie
"I have used this over and over again when coaching students with ADHD. It empowers them to go back to their physician with some knowledge to start the discussion about their medications." ~ Barbara Ryan Hausman, Director of Learning Disability Support Services, Lehigh University
