Linda Lawton started the Center of Attention and Learning in 2010 to provide a range of services, education and activities that serve the needs of people who are challenged by learning difficulties and executive dysfunction. 

Neuro-developmental variation first captured her interest when she was principal of a private middle school in the 80’s.  This led her into the Schools Attuned pilot teacher training in 1995, and then to the field of educational therapy in 2001.  Ms. Lawton received her ET training at UC Berkeley Extension and completed a one-year residency in assessment at the New Learning Clinic in 2004. As a lifelong learner, she earned her Masters from Goddard Graduate Institute in 2015. Her thesis, Timeblind, is about the treatment of ADHD in adults.

She is a professional level educational therapist and credentialed in the state of California to teach social science, art and multiple subjects to kindergarten through adult students.  She presents frequently on the subject of executive dysfunction and has had her writing published in Attention magazine (CHADD), The Educational Therapist (AET) and The Clinical Practice of Educational Therapy: Learning and Functioning with Diversity, Edition 2, (edited by Maxine Ficksman and Jane Utley Adelizzi, Routledge, 2017).
