That sounds really interesting, and I would LOVE to find out what he has to say, especially since I'm a teacher. I'm just worried about the teleconference thing. I'm not sure how well I would be able to follow it. Anyone with experience on teleconferences??

I wish it was an online video conference...

You know I have the same concern. I'd love to do it but am afraid I might miss too much -- I pace around the house like a cage tiger everytime I'm on the phone as it is to help me concentrate.

They usually have recordings available to be purchased after the live classes. That way you can pause and rewind. You should also be able to mute yourself during the live call so you can multi-task.

Maybe I'll look into recording...I can barely focus while on the phone for longer than 5 minutes when it's a two person conversation, never mind a 2 hour long teleconference.

sheesh, you would think an ADDer like Hallowell would have thought of that! ;)
