Ben Glenn          

Internationally Recognized Chalk Artist, ADHD Expert & Motivational Speaker

Ben Glenn, the Simple ADHD Expert, aka The Chalkguy, was diagnosed with Dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities while in grade school. As an adult he discovered that he had suffered from ADD all along and suddenly everything about his life made perfect sense.

He left college to pursue a love of art and speaking, and has been “on the road”, full-time since 1995, traveling to every part of the United States as well as to more remote places like China and Australia to share his message.

Ever since his ADD diagnosis, he has been on a personal quest to learn as much as possible about his “disorder”. This journey has completely changed the way he views himself and ADD. Nowhere is the saying “Knowledge is Power” more applicable than when it comes to ADD.

Years of living with and studying ADD have brought Glenn to the firm conclusion that ADD impairs a person’s life when that person is trapped in an ADD-unfriendly environment or does not possess the information needed in order to deal with their symptoms. It may be a long time before much changes about the way typical schools operate, or the way a corporation expects their employees to behave, but Glenn’s mission is to share what he has discovered and continues to discover daily about ADD.

Apart from helping dispel the myths and misunderstandings surrounding ADD, Glenn speaks about overcoming adversity, diversity and creativity.

Finally, as much as he loves being a speaker and performing artist, he loves being a husband and father more. His lives with his wife and two daughters in Indianapolis, Indiana.
