The benefit I felt was bringing our family together

It was not difficult but I missed my phone and computer. We finally got out the ping pong table. And I learned that I like some board games


Ron is a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. His primary care practice focused on ADHD –direct management, and coordination with specialists, educators, and psychologists. His goal was, and remains, to help educate patient and their families, and to optimize the outcome of children with ADHD.

Fully trained as a coach, his exclusive work for 7 years, he helps children while maintaining the engagement of families of minors, to provide valuable feedback and observations. His clients, all students, each affected by ADHD, range in age from 14 years old, to a 29 year old medical student.

Ron has taught at George Mason University (Peer-reviewed literature), where he gave presentations to the Office of Disability, and to an Adolescent Psychology class. He has taught medical humanism to students from the VCU School of Medicine. At Covenant House DC, he developed a character and strength building program, and was chosen as their volunteer of the year in 2003.

Ron observes an invariable dependence, conflict, or outright screen addiction in almost every single of his male clients with ADHD. Through considerable coaching experience, learning what works and what doesn’t – and with a modicum of wisdom, and extensive study – Ron has created a personalized family and values oriented program to help eliminate screen addiction.
