Why Kids With LD and ADHD Hate School, And What You Can Do About It, with Dr. Jerome Schultz

In this podcast we discuss Dr. Jerome Schultz’s groundbreaking book ( audiobook available on on Learning Ally ),” Nowhere To Hide” . In it, Schultz addresses the consequences of the unabated stress associated with Learning disabilities/ADHD and the toxic, deleterious impact of this stress on kids’ academic learning, social skills, behavior, and efficient brain functioning.

Schultz draws upon three decades of work as a neuropsychologist, teacher educator, and school consultant to address this gap. This book really can help change the way parents and teachers think about why kids with LD and ADHD find school and homework so toxic, while also offering abundant supply of practical, understandable strategies that have been shown to reduce stress at school and at home, such as Shultz’s SAVING FASE, and DE-STRESS models.
