May I Have Your Attention Please! Parenting Your Child with ADHD (Elementary/Middle)
Are you confused and frustrated by your child's inability to 'just sit still'? Do you get frequent calls from your child's teacher about incomplete assignments? Are you tired of having to constantly repeat your requests? These and other concerns are frequently experienced by parents of children with ADHD—a common behavioral disorder that affects about 10% of school-age children.
We will provide tools to help you understand what your child with ADHD can do and how you can support them in reaching his or her full potential. You will leave this workshop with an understanding of: current research on the most effective ADHD treatment options; the most effective behavioral goals to target; the critical elements of a successful ADHD-focused behavior plan; and how to implement an effective ADHD-informed behavior management system at home.
