Families & Parents

Younger children most often need to hear “it” from their parents.  Typically, I work with the parents to help them understand what is going on inside their ADHD child’s brain.  ADHD is incredibly counterintuitive.  Parenting an ADHD child is just as counterintuitive.  I teach parenting strategies that work for ADHD kids.  Usually, with the right methods, families can lower the stress and acrimony while slowly, but surely, modifying their child’s behavior to achieve a better result.
Some of the other topics I often discuss with parents/families are:

  • Daily routine, (morning and evening)
  • Homework struggles
  • Impulsivity
  • Executive function issues 
  • Positive parenting techniques
  • Lowering family stress and reducing arguing
  • How to handle ADHD and non-ADHD kids under the same roof
  • How to decide if medication is part of the answer
