Hallowell, a former instructor at the Harvard Medical School, one of the foremost experts on ADHD in the world, and the founder of the Hallowell Center for Emotional and Cognitive Health, was invited by the Eagle Hill School in Hardwick, Massachusetts to deliver this year’s¬†graduation speech. (March 2, 2011 – Eagle Hill School does not have the speech posted to their website anymore, but you can read the text on Dr. Hallowell’s web site, and you can watch the video on vimeo.)
