Ryan’s out-of-the-box, research-informed approach to treating ADHD  has brought much-needed practicality to the ADHD field. Ryan takes otherwise stodgy academic content and conveys it as highly engaging, actionable, and authentic. No sugar-coating, no “academic speak.” It’s been said about Ryan, “You may not like what he has to say, but he’ll always be real with you.”

He offers practical solutions for the most common stressors families of kids with ADHD experience, including behavior at home, lagging social skills, difficulty making and keeping friends, and managing their emotions.  Educators, mental health professionals, and speech-language pathologists have found Ryan’s presentations practical as professionals and parents.

His enthusiasm and breadth of knowledge in the ADHD arena are why Ryan Wexelblatt is a sought-after guest on parenting, health & wellness, education, and, of course, ADHD-specific media outlets, conferences, and parent groups.  He relates well not only with moms but his affable approach and penchant for storytelling keep kids (with short attention spans) engaged.  Ryan resonates particularly well with fathers who appreciate his lack of “fluffy” language and psychobabble.
