Tuesday, May 28, and Tuesday, June 11, 6:30-7:30 pm

Have you have ever felt that you were capable of so much more? When you hear the words lazy, crazy or stupid, do you believe they apply to you? Do you know what needs to be done, but just can’t focus enough to do it?

If this sounds familiar, join Mindy Schwartz Katz M.S., ACC, a Life Coach specializing in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorders, in partnership with Jewish Family Service of Tidewater for two free educational meetings to learn how to work with an AD/HD brain and stop fighting with it.

Approximately 4.5 percent of adults have AD/HD and only 11 percent are receiving treatment. You probably know some adults who may be struggling with AD/HD. There is so much misinformation about AD/HD and its effects on adults, creating a stigma for anyone who may be struggling with this neurological challenge. These sessions will provide helpful information, tools and techniques.

Meetings will take place at JFS, 260 Grayson Rd., Virginia Beach. Call or e-mail to reserve a place: 459-4640 or

Tuesday, May 28, 6:30-7:30 pm Adult AD/HD 101

Tuesday, June 11, 6:30-7:30 pm Organization & the AD/HD Brain
Becoming aware of how your brain works and sorts information is the first step to finding a system that works. If Martha Stewart doesn’t live in your house, you may need to find your own unique solutions for your brain.
