The Life of Dad After Show – Episode 206 – Dr. Thomas Armstrong – American Institute for Learning and Human Development

Art Eddy and Ryan Hamilton bring on educator and psychologist, Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D., to talk about his latest book, The Myth of the ADHD Child: 101 Ways to Improve Your Child’s Behavior and Attention Span Without Drugs, Labels, or Coercion.

This book provides a thought-provoking argument against this hidden agenda of underlying values behind the ADD/ADHD diagnosis. After addressing the many inconsistencies, faulty logic, and unsupported conclusions of the ADHD paradigm, Dr. Armstrong spends the remaining two-thirds of his book proposing a far broader range of practical, positive, and organic strategies that parents and educators should consider to help kids diagnosed with ADHD.

Thomas Armstrong, Ph.D. is the Executive Director of the American Institute for Learning and Human Development, and an award-winning author and speaker who has been an educator for over forty years. Over one million copies of his books are in print in English on issues related to learning and human development.

Dr. Armstrong is the author of sixteen books. For more information, visit the American Institute for Learning and Human Development at Institute4Learning.com.
