by Lee Gehrls R&D Coordinator (Volunteer)

Thanks to the Internet all of us in our ADHD community in Central Minnesota have the opportunity to learn from a variety of nationally known ADHD experts from all over the United States. This month I would like to take advantage of that learning opportunity to introduce you to Dr. Sharon Saline who is the author of What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew. Her book won Best Book Awards winner by American Book Fest and the Gold Medal from Mom’s Choice Awards.

Dr. Saline is a licensed clinical psychologist with more than 25 years of experience and has a private practice in Northampton, MA. She specializes in working with neurodiverse and 2e children, adolescents, college students, and families who have ADHD, anxiety, executive functioning issues, learning challenges, and other mental health issues. Besides her private practice, Dr. Saline is a member of the ADDitude Medical Advisory Panel, a frequent contributor to ADDitude Magazine, and a presenter for their webinars. She has been published in Psychology Today, is a presenter for CHADD webinars, travels internationally giving workshops, and lectures part-time at Smith School for Social Work.

Because Dr. Saline lives in an area with a number of colleges and universities she often works with college students helping them learn how to manage college life, classes and studying, and social interactions of campus life.

On March 31, 2021, CHADD featured her in an Ask the Expert Webinar: Navigating College with ADHD | Preparing for Success which you might want to check out. The webinar will give you information and strategies you will need to succeed at school so you can be your own advocate. She begins the webinar pointing out to parents that she is speaking to the new graduates or the students who are ready to go off to college or other schooling, but yes parents you should also listen to the webinar. It is a webinar that you will probably want to watch several times and put in your ADHD toolbox.
