Today we welcomed our Newest Member to ADDer World (as of this writing):
Nancy Ratey – She is the author of the new book: The Disorganized Mind: Coaching Your ADHD Brain to Take Control of Your Time, Tasks, and Talents. I very recently reviewed Nancy’s book here on ADDer World.
Nancy Ratey is a major advocate for those with ADHD. Having dyslexia and ADHD herself, Nancy engineered her own road to success. Nancy graduated from The Ohio State University in 1982 and, in 1991, she earned a Master’s degree in Education from Harvard University, specializing in administration, planning and social policy. While employed as a resident student advisor at Harvard, she began working one-on-one with ADHD students who came to her because they knew she was personally familiar with their struggles. At Harvard, she started a speaker series that not only encouraged students to seek accommodations from the administration, but which also helped shape Harvard’s policies on working with students with learning disabilities and ADHD. Nancy became a leader in the field of disability rights and was invited to give expert testimony to a congressional committee concerning the historic Americans with Disabilities Act.
A wholehearted welcome to Nancy Ratey to ADDer World!
