Thomas E. Brown, PhD

 Course Description:

Some very bright children, teens and adults focus very well and work hard for tasks and activities that strongly interest them, yet they have much difficulty in focusing and working hard for tasks in school or work that are important, but do not interest them. Some also have chronic difficulty in social relationships, finding it difficult to understand others’ point of view. Dr. Thomas Brown, author of a new book, ADHD and Asperger Syndrome, will describe updated strategies and treatments to understand and help those with such difficulties to improve their executive functioning and social interaction.
