I am kind of a poster child for ADHD with most of the common related problems – ODD and dyslexia. As a medical doctor, homeschooler, tutor, and author, I bring my unique background and tremendous insight to this website.
My advice is clearly not medical advice because I clearly disagree with common standard practice of the ADHD child. But over time I will footnote the research that back up my claims. I hope that the medical world which I deeply love will some day change treatment for a disorder that is “affecting” nearly 5 million children.
Testimonials From Attendees of Dr. Guffanti’s Talks
“You were one of the most informative speakers I’ve heard in a long time.” — Sheldon Linker, Ontario CA
“Of all the lectures I heard, and I attended both days, your talk was the most inspiring. I thought your talk was easy to understand, and easy to follow. The other day, for the first time, my son said to me, “Mommy, I want you to teach me to read.” This was a huge and amazing statement coming from the child I had to practically arm wrestle to get to address his Language arts and Phonics work in Kindergarten last year. I hope you will come back to Alaska soon, and teach us more.” — Gresha Wolfe, Anchorage, AK
“Thank you for taking time out of your life to give talks about kinesthetic learners and ADHD. I enjoyed hearing you speak and share your heart. When you explained what it is to be a kinesthetic learner and how the world reacted to you as a kinesthetic child growing up, my heart was touched. Your talk helped me to better understand the kinesthetics in my life and the challenges they face in a predominantly non-kinesthetic world. You have helped me down the road to be a more understanding mother, and I hope that you continue to spread this message.” — Sincerely, Christina McDonnell, St. Louis, MO
“I wasn’t going to come to the fair this year – we didn’t come last year because we’re pretty set. But I went online and looked at the talks and when I saw your husband and his talks I said to my husband we have to go.” — No name given, Atlanta, GA
