Understanding adult ADD

Attention Deficit Disorder specialist Carol Gignoux will speak on "The Many Faces of Adult ADD" Monday, June 7, 7:30 p.m., at the Newton Free Library.

Adult Attention Deficit Disorder affects a large part of the population, and the symptoms of those who have it can also adversely impact co-workers, friends and loved ones. This program is for adults who have trouble focusing, understanding things, are forgetful and often feel overwhelmed as well as those who are close to them. Gignoux will identify common ADD symptoms and issues, as well as strategies and resources for coping with the disability.

An educator and school administrator, Gignoux has spent more than 30 years helping adults and adolescents with ADD/ADHD. She is the founder and president of ADD Insights, a firm that provides coaching and training for adults with ADD. She has worked with ADD/ADHD expert Dr. Edward Hallowell at the Hallowell Center in Massachusetts.
