Comments About the Content

"Dan Duncan's workshop was absolutely fantastic!! I learned more about
ADHD in that one workshop than I have learned in all the other workshops
on the subject combined! I'd highly recommend him to anyone, and would love to see him come to a wider audience in the future. He's just that outstanding."

“Best Professional Development I’ve be to as a teacher in 16 years. I love how you have ADHD yourself, so you offer insights from the ‘inside scoop’. "

“This should be a mandatory Pro-D Day requirement”
 “I have seen a number of ADHD presentations - this one was by far the most educational, realistic, and thought provoking because of the personal examples shared.”
 “Wow! I had several students in my mind during your presentation and your explanations & advice will definitely keep me moving forward!” 
“Informative, funny, insightful. Best workshop on ADHD I’ve been to!”
