Bulletin Board: Larry Jones '71

Larry A. Jones, MD and Audrey R. Jones, penned FALLING THROUGH THE CEILING, a compelling chronicle of a family living with the challenges of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder). From ‘Suffering in Silence’ to ‘Frustration and Resilience’, Audrey and Larry are unabashedly candid about the struggles this upwardly mobile, middle-class family of African descent endured. Discussion and/or acknowledgement of ADHD in African American families has historically been the enemy with and among us. The self-imposed stigma of having ADHD loomed large. Considering this, Audrey and Larry, due to experience in and exposure to the disorder, provide a blueprint for elucidating causes and effects of the ‘fall’ and ever-increasing possibilities through diagnosis and treatment. "FALLING THROUGH THE CEILING:Our ADHD Family Memoir" is available on Amazon.com and at ENABLETABLES.COM  Read More

Wesleyan Magazine Issue 3 - 2017
To walk Wesleyan’s campus is to be surrounded by history that whispers from buildings. Look inside to read about the Presidents who left their mark (or didn’t), the legendary faculty who built Wesleyan’s reputation, the controversies that raged, and the seismic changes in student life since the University was founded in 1831. All these moments, and more, make Wesleyan what it is today.
