  • Presenter: Chris A. Dendy MS
  • Co-Presenter: Tommy Dendy
  • Chris Zeigler Dendy and her husband Tommy will take you through their “educational” 40+ year journey as parents of three children and five grandchildren, all of whom have ADHD. As parents of two teenagers who faced many struggles with their ADHD, the Dendy’s worred about their future! “What does the future hold for our children? Will they graduate from high school? Go to college? Get a job?” And somewhat tongue in cheek, “Are they going to live with us forever?” Well, don’t miss this keynote presentation because the Dendys will give you the answers to these questions and more. They deliver an inspiring message of hope for the future of our children! Chris, the author of four popular books and two DVDs on ADHD plus co-creator of the ever-popular ADD/ADHD Iceberg poster, will share important lessons that she and her husband learned the hard way. Several of these highly recommended materials were created through the partnership with their uniquely qualified youngest son Alex, whose experience of living with ADHD was invaluable. As a graduate of the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, Tommy will share lessons he learned as he approached parenting from a military perspective. Dendy, who after 30 years retired from Rock-Tenn Company as a Senior Vice-President, is one of the four Dads featured in their DVD for fathers.

  • Presenter: Thomas Brown Ph.D.
  • Many children, teens and adults with ADHD report that they recognize tasks or activities they ought to do, but find it extremely difficult to get themselves motivated to actually get started and do them. Yet most persons with ADHD also have a few activities or tasks for which they have no trouble at all in getting motivated and doing what they need to do. This causes them and those who know them to wonder: “Why can I get so motivated to do these things and yet have so much trouble in doing these other tasks or activities which I know are more important.” Dr. Brown will describe the unrecognized and often complicated role of emotions in ADHD. He will explain research findings about how impairments of ADHD can contribute to chronic problems of motivation. And he will use case examples to show various ways in which these challenges can be addressed by those with ADHD and those who seek to help them cultivate more adequate motivation so they can develop realistic hope for improvement of their current functioning and for their future.
  • LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1. Discuss why persons with ADHD tend to have specific activities for which they have strong and consistent motivation, even though they have difficulty with motivation for many other tasks they recognize as important for them to do 2. Describe the role of “hyperfocus” and “working memory” play in causing motivational problems for some with ADHD 4. Apply examples of how some attempts to motivate persons with ADHD may backfire
