Heroes in Our Midst

A new book by ADHD coach and former journalist Judy Brenis is titled simply, ADHD Heroes. In 23 chapters, each profiling an individual who is an ADHD hero in some way or another, she shares inspiring stories along with helpful tips that together offer hope to those who might see the ADHD glass as half empty. What’s wonderful for the ACO and its members is that no fewer than seven of us are profiled as heroes. So look for the book at Amazon, and send a congrats to Sheryl Greenfield, Alan Brown, Jeff Copper, David Giwerc, Barbara Luther, Jay Carter and Laurie Dupar. Check out the ADHD Heroes project at ADHDHeros.org.


Roxanne Fouché was recently the guest expert at a boostcollaborative.org BoostChat. The topic was how to set students with ADHD up for success in after-school programs. The BOOST Collaborative is an inspiring organization whose purpose is summed up in its mission statement:

The BOOST Collaborative is a purpose-driven organization committed to creating opportunities for change in educational and social services agencies serving youth in the out-of-school time hours. We support out-of-school time professionals through quality professional development opportunities, program and resource development, building community partnerships, promoting the importance of quality out-of-school time programming, opportunities to share promising practices, and a variety of consulting services.

Congratulations to Roxanne for her advocacy work, for an example of effective community partnering, and for bringing this organization and outreach forum to her fellow coaches’ attention.
