One hallmark of ADHD is executive function trouble:  problems planning, organizing, beginning tasks, completing tasks and poor self-regulation.  This can create problems in school and at home, and create a pattern of unrealized potential.  Technology can provide a scaffold upon which to offload the information needed to help individuals do the right thing at the right time.  Our speaker, Mike Marotta, will be leading us through a variety of programs and apps designed to boost productivity, while reducing procrastination and removing the allure of social web surfing and diversions.

 "New Vistas on ADHD: A Neuroscientist's perspective on Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder”

Date:  Sunday, March 6, 2016

Time: 1:30pm – 3:00pm

Location:  All Saints’ Church 16 All Saints Road, Princeton, NJ 08540

Sponsor:  CHADD of Princeton-Mercer County

Contact: adhdcoachjane@gmail.com 609-731-7556  Registration Appreciated 

 

Princeton professor of neuroscience and psychology, Dr. Sabine Kastner, will speak about the mechanics of sensory processing, filtering, and the brain's attention network. Currently on the forefront of many forms of ADHD research, Dr. Kastner will describe results from 30 years of research in psychology and neuroscience that has elucidated how the attention network in the human brain controls how we perceive our environment, filter information that we are not interested in, and maintain thoughts that guide our future behavior.  Dr Kastner will bring us to a deeper understanding of ADHD, one that goes beyond the Executive Function Deficit model, and she will provide insight into the interesting and new research findings on ADHD you need to be aware of.

 

Bio, Dr Sabine Kastner

Sabine Kastner is a Professor of Neuroscience and Psychology in the Princeton Neuroscience Institute (PNI) and in the Department of Psychology (since 2000). She also serves as the Scientific Director of the Scully Center’s neuroimaging facility. Dr. Kastner earned M.D. (1993) and PhD (1994) degrees and did postdoctoral studies at the National Institute of Mental Health. Dr. Kastner studies the neural basis of visual perception, attention, and awareness in the adult brain, in patients with brain lesions, and during neurodevelopment. She has published more than 100 articles in journals and books including the ‘Handbook of Attention’, a comprehensive state-of-the-art reference for the field (2013, Oxford University Press). As a parent of a special child, Dr. Kastner is an advocate for children with neurodevelopmental challenges and engages in educational outreach activities to support their families.

ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life In “The Era of Endless”

Date: Sunday, March 15th , 2015

 Note: if you wish a copy of the powerpoint, write adhdcoachjane@gmail.com

 We live in the Era of Endless, confronted by endless information. This poses new organizing challenges such as: how do we make decisions based on information when there is no end to it?  When is enough, enough?  For ADDers who are avid information-seekers but soft on decision-making, the Era of Endless can be particularly overwhelming. We’ll discuss powerful ADD-friendly strategies for getting the upper hand. Interruptions and distractions endlessly distract us from our train of thought and the task at hand. Here is where ADDers have much to contribute. Having spent your lifetime dealing with distractions, we’ll discuss these strategies freshened up for the Era of Endless. The Era of Endless is amazing. We can work without as much regard to walls, bosses, time zones and geography. But this endless connectedness to devices and screens also pushes some impulsivity buttons. Find out how to push back using ADD strengths to your advantage.
