It Really Is All about the Child: An Interview with Dr. Edward Hallowell
Peters, Dane L.
Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, v24 n4 p12-17 Win 2012
In a decade when brain research has helped people understand learning difficulties in children, and people have seen increased media attention on the use of medications to treat attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children and adults, Dr. Edward (Ned) Hallowell has worked tirelessly to educate the medical profession, parents, educators, and particularly the media about the disorder. He has also worked to keep the well-being of the child at the forefront of debates, misunderstandings, and parental anxieties. "Finding the Heart of the Child: Essays on Children, Schools, and Families," Hallowell's first book of the 20 he has written to date, should give people an insight into this child-centered physician's synchrony with Dr. Montessori's philosophy. Hallowell, child and adult psychiatrist, has championed the child for some 30 years now. In this interview, Hallowell talks about his work and his upcoming Dr. Nancy McCormick Rambusch Lecture at the American Montessori Society Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, in March 2013.
