Edward (Ned) Hallowell

Child and Adult Psychiatrist, Learning Differences Expert, Founder of The Hallowell Centers
Edward (Ned) Hallowell, MD, EdD, is a child and adult psychiatrist, New York Times bestselling author, world-renowned speaker, and leading authority in the field of ADHD. He is also founder of the Hallowell Centers — specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of learning differences, especially ADHD and dyslexia, using a strength-based approach.

Dr. Hallowell’s groundbreaking New York Times best-seller on ADD, Driven to Distraction, brought attention deficit disorder to the general public in 1994. He went on to write 19 more books, which have collectively sold more than 2 million copies, on topics including learning differences, how to deal with worry, how to forgive, how to raise children so that they will become the adults we hope they will become, and (his latest book) how to achieve focus in the modern, highly charged and distracted workplace.

Dr. Hallowell has appeared on every major television show, including Oprah, Good Morning America, and the Today Show. A graduate of Harvard College and Tulane Medical School, Dr. Hallowell served on the Harvard Medical School faculty for 20 years before retiring from academia to devote all of his time to seeing patients, writing books, and giving lectures and seminars.
