Description: ADHD is a complicated diagnosis with many different facets. Children and adults struggle to maintain their regulation in a world requiring productivity across different timelines. Creativity and ideation may abound and intellectual curiosity be available, but to plan thoughts into efficiency may inhibit their ability to show it. Traditional methods of teaching seem to not produce the result of learning in a satisfactory way. How do we support them to maintain the creativity of who they are, yet enable the self -regulation and inhibition to show their strengths? These 3 sessions will help the attendee to dig deeper into the ADHD type profile and how this impact on learning and social functions, as well as discuss the listening test assessment and how the different parameters of the Tomatis Method could be used to support building attention and executive function.

Bio: Maude is a globally known presenter on a variety of different topics. She hails from South Africa, graduated there in 1984, and opened her private practice in Glen Mills, PA in 2001.

She is well known in the global Tomatis Community and have spoken at multiple international conferences over the years. She opened the Maude Le Roux Academy in January 2019 as her travel schedule disallowed her the pleasure of feeling “grounded” in her own home!

She believes in giving back to her community and has served on the Board of Directors for ATTACh for the past 6 years. Maude co-authored the book, Our Greatest Allies, with Lauren O’Malley and hopes to find the time in the next 5 years to finish another book she has been laboring over. Her wish is for every therapist to come fully into their own being, be their authentic selves, so their clients can also transition from sometimes fragmented places to a new sense of wholeness.
