Karen Lowry, author of “The Seventh Inning Sit: A Journey of ADHD” joins us.
After her son, Jonathan was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of six, Karen Lowry observed the school system was ill-equipped to handle the special needs of children with ADHD, and their co-existing disorders. Karen Lowry says, “I began to advocate for Jon, calling meeting after meeting, wanting to ensure academic success, and a healthy self-esteem for my son. No one could really direct me to the necessary information that was needed to truly understand and support him.”
Despite these obstacles, Lowry’s persistence led her to find answers. Karen Lowry is a mom with 4 children and a parenting advocate with a nursing degree. You can find her book on Amazon.
Her book depicts her own journey of frustration and discovery. She shares her journey to help other parents supporting a child with ADHD in the school system.
