Without a doubt, Title One Schools and Parent Engagement, family and community seminar leader, parenting and family speaker and fatherhood keynote speaker Dr. Adolph Brown offers the most unique, relevant, value-added, entertaining, and fun yet challenging presentations in America.  To ensure that the students of today are ready for the careers of tomorrow, parent, families, schools and community groups must work together to promote engagement that is systemic, sustained and integrated into school improvement efforts.  Research over the past 30 years has shown that engaging families in their children's education increases student achievement and decreases dropout rates.  As a child of a single-parent mother reared in the housing projects while spending summers on a farm in rural Virginia, Dr. Adolph Brown is an advocate of strong families & strong schools. It is as a result of his strong family and strong schools that he is now a clinical and educational psychologist, tenured full professor, author, businessman and research-scientist.  Rearing the next generation is a shared responsibility.  When families, communities and schools work together, students are more successful and the entire community benefits. As a parent, family and community engagement speaker, Dr. Adolph Brown is first and foremost a husband and a father of eight.  Dr. Brown knows that rearing children is not easy and does not come with guidelines, instructions or a pause button.  Dr. Brown has experienced many adventures in parenting not only as an early childhood education speaker, but also from parenting a child with special needs to parenting adult child ten.  Dr. Brown has extensive experience working with students and families who live in and through the crisis of poverty and improving communication and relations across barriers of poverty.  As a Title I Speaker, Dr. Brown's tireless efforts for Improving The Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged can be seen in countless schools.  Effective family engagement is not a one-time program or the choice of a good school, but rather a set of day-to-day practices, attitudes, beliefs and interactions that support learning at home, at school, after school and during the summer.  Dr. Brown shares what successful culturally-responsive family & community engagement looks like, how to do it, and its wondrous benefits due to his unique success in the practical training & fun application of family engagement and best practices in child development.  As a parenting keynote speaker education series trainer, Dr. Brown's family and community engagement philosophy takes you to the frontlines of doing what’s best for children and inspires you to positively impact the world.  He has also counseled diverse families in crisis and trauma (divorce, co-parenting, single-parenting, adoptive, gay or lesbian, immigrant, migrant, bi-racial, multi-racial, trans-racial adoptive, blended, broken, co-custody, extended, conditionally separated, foster and transnational families) for over three decades.


Commonly Known as a "Semester in an Hour" & “A Party with a Purpose” (depending on the occasion) includes all of Dr. Adolph "Doc" Brown's informing & inspiring Master Classes.  EVERY Keynote, Virtual, Master Class, Breakout, Workshop, Seminar, On-site Consultation & Training Session is full of tons of learning, laughter, & practical takeaways!
