About Sarah Cheyette:
Sarah Cheyette is a pediatric neurologist—a doctor who specializes in kids brains. She loves treating ADHD patients because it is so rewarding to make interventions early in life and change a kid's trajectory so that they are heading for success.

She developed techniques for changing children’s mind-set and behavior in ADHD involving the simple, powerful concepts based on the athletic mind-set and training. Just as athletes improve their athletic skills through proper coaching and training, parents can learn similar techniques to help "coach" their children through challenges. Both ADHDers and athletes need to identify challenges, set goals, learn to deal with setbacks, and work hard. A person with ADHD who does this can break away from a cycle of underachievement or outright failure to become a world-class success story! She wants to help your ADHD child to win the game, whatever the game may be! Although her therapeutic approach employs the athletic mindset as a framework, it is not intended solely for athletes - anybody with ADHD can improve their ability to focus, reduce their tendency to procrastinate, and cultivate their planning skills by developing this mindset regardless of their level of interest in sports or prior experiences in athletics.

She has written two books which explain of the basics of ADHD—its common behavioral symptoms, the biology behind it, and what research has revealed about it – as well as issues faced by parents when considering prescription medications and other approaches to treatment.

Sarah Cheyette graduated cum laude in Cognitive Neuroscience from Princeton University and received her medical degree from the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. Following specialty training in pediatrics at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and in pediatric neurology at Seattle Children’s Hospital she settled with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area. She practices at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation where she focuses on treating ADHD in both children and adults. For the last 5 years, she has been a "Top Doctor" in San Francisco magazine.
