Joe Newman will be the keynote speaker at our 2022 Pathway to Partnerships Conference.

Joe Newman was one of the first children to be diagnosed with ADHD. Growing up with this label taught him that he was "broken", and that he had a limited potential. Through experience and change, Joe shattered this label and re-built his identity into a joyfully whole person.

For nearly 30 years, Joe has worked with children of all ages who struggle to harness their potential, whether they are diagnosed with a disorder or just having difficulty with boundaries at home or in school. His work has been researched by UCSB and published in his 2010 book, Raising Lions.

Joe coaches parents, teachers and school administrators to raise and teach children to step into the future that they uniquely can build. The methods Joe outlines in his book are practical, easy to implement and based on common sense. Instead of observing the child and treating a "condition", Raising Lions helps teachers determine the causes of a child's behavior and identifies a step-by-step approach to correct it, shifting the way adults and children interact everyday. With these shifts in interaction, children develop the ability to internally self-regulate, and teachers set boundaries, while recognizing the voice and autonomy of the child.
