Meet Jerome Schultz, PhD

I'm Dr. Jerry Schultz. I'm a pediatric neuropsychologist. And I specialize in the evaluation and treatment of children with learning disabilities, ADHD, and other special needs. I'm the author of a book called Nowhere to Hide: Why Kids with Learning Disabilities and ADHD Hate School and What We Can Do About It. I'm married to a wonderful woman who has given me two wonderful young adult daughters, who in turn have given me five talented gifted grandchildren. And they made a wise choice of living close to us in our home outside the Boston area, so we have a lot of joy in our life. For fun, I like to make silver jewelry and large welded metal sculptures made of found objects that I pick up along the road and in dumps all across the United States.

In addition to his clinical and educational work, Dr. Schultz serves as an international consultant on issues related to the neuropsychology and appropriate education of children and young adults with ADHD & LD and other special needs. In his current role as neuropsychological consultant to several large school districts in the Boston area, he is on the ground, in schools and working with kids and their teachers several days each week.

Dr. Schultz created an award-winning video called “Einstein and Me” about living successfully with a learning disability, and has written extensively about children with learning, behavioral and emotional challenges. He has a special education and psychology blog on the Huffington Post. His book, called Nowhere to Hide: Why Kids with ADHD and LD Hate School and What We Can Do About It, (Jossey-Bass/Wiley) which examines the role of stress in learning, has received international acclaim.
