ADHD Part 1: An Overview –
Part 1 of this series will center on a discussion of the diagnostic criteria for ADHD and when pursuing an ADHD evaluation may be appropriate for your child. We will dive into questions surrounding how ADHD is defined, how to talk to teachers and your child’s pediatrician about attention concerns, and when to consider a formal assessment.
ADHD Part 2: A Parent’s Guide to Management –
Once a diagnosis is established, parents often have many questions about what comes next. Part 2 of this series will focus on evidence based treatment options once a diagnosis of ADHD has been made. The goal of this session is that parents leave with a better understanding of all aspects of treatment, including medication options, school accommodations and other therapeutic interventions.
