The following announcement was distributed by Judy Ruffalo.

If you have a child who struggles with learning, mark your calendar for November 20th for a program you won't want to miss! Join us as neuropsychologist Scott Johnson presents recent research findings regarding the underlying brain-based causes of ADHD and related attentional disorders affecting children with special learning needs. A variety of supports, accommodations and treatment options for modulating these difficulties will be reviewed.

Scott is a wonderfully entertaining, engaging, knowledgeable speaker. Prior to going into private practice, he was employed within the Psychology Department of a large, free-standing rehabilitation hospital in the Chicago area. Scott has conducted comprehensive evaluations and offered treatment recommendations to physicians, parents and educators for thousands of children presenting with developmental and acquired neurological disorders. Scott has been a consultant to the Illinois State Board of Education on Special Educational programming and has provided many invited professional lectures, presentations and addresses at local, regional and national conferences.
