How to Support Your Child with ADHDADHDWorkshop_Insta.jpg

April 23, 2024, 6:15 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. (registration open)
Presenters: Maria Phelps, Kristy Wake, Tracey Eagle, & Potoula Locken

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition that affects millions of children and often continues into adulthood. ADHD includes a combination of challenges, such as difficulty sustaining attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior. Children and adolescents with ADHD may also struggle with low self-esteem, school anxiety, troubled relationships, and poor performance in school. However, children and adolescents with ADHD can learn strategies to be successful. In this free, virtual workshop for caregivers that know or suspect their child has ADHD, we will be providing information on assessment, strategies, and interventions that set your child or teen up for success at school and beyond.
