Celebrating ADHD Awareness Month with CHADD of Northern Virginia/DC!

In recognition of ADHD Awareness Month, we will be addressing technology across the life span.  While the Internet is a beneficial tool and some technological advances provide innovative ways to learn and share information, misuse has become a problem.  The focus of this event will be to provide information, solutions and resources to parents of children, teens, young adults and adults as well as ADHD professionals who treat those suffering from Internet addictions.

“The Healthy Use of Technology”,

Keynote Speaker:  Dr. Edward Spector, Psy.D. 

Technology can enhance our lives in many ways, but when used to excess it can negatively impact us.  Some excessive use can be an attempt to cope with significant psychological problems, such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, or social skill deficits.

Dr.  Spector will present on the healthy use of technology, including common forms of electronic games, the internet, and the use of smart phones.
