Cleveland, Ga. – Truett McConnell University’s Leonhard Schiemer School of Psychology and Biblical Counseling will be offering a free attention deficit disorder (ADD) workshop to the community on Thursday, September 28.

The workshop, titled “How to Minimize Distractions and Study More Effectively: Coping with ADD,” will be led by TMU Professor of Psychology, Dr. Rick Fowler.

Fowler, who is experienced in clinical services, also copes with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The professor’s experience with the disorder has allowed him to rise above his difficulties by using effective tips and techniques to manage ADHD symptoms.

The upcoming workshop will tackle the challenges students and parents face in managing ADD by applying Fowler’s strategies in order to study effectively and achieve success in school.

Topics will include: improving your ADHD child’s school experiences, reducing anxiety and increasing his/her academic performance, differences between a diagnosed ADHD student and a non-ADHD student, becoming more successful in school and interacting with school officials.

The event is free and open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. on the second floor of the Nix Student Center.
