Joan K. Teach, PhD, has been a special educator working with the ADHD population for over 50 years. As the former director of Lullwater School, a center for students with neurobiological needs, she investigated techniques that increased success and survival for her students. Currently, she facilitates support groups for parents, adults, and women with ADHD and is a catalyst toward growth and success. Upon retirement, she developed a client-consulting specialty with late adolescents and young adults and women with specific ADHD issues. Concerned about the lack of services and support for this population, she utilizes her teaching skills to guide a discovery of strengths, support uncovering weaknesses, and provide guidance to develop goals to improve life skills. As a gamer, she develops games and simulations for the learning difference community. Nationally she has served on the AIGE, CHADD, and LDA boards, and is a member of IDA, CEC, and ACO. Locally she is involved with CHADD GA, LDA GA, Kids Enabled, and a new service organization called GOLD-GA Opportunities for Learning Differences. Her passion is to make a change in individuals' lives to facilitate a richer and fuller life.
