Event description

Description

A diagnosis of ADHD can feel overwhelming and confusing for many families and caregivers. This presentation focuses on taking the fear out of the diagnosis by empowering you to become the agent of change in a child’s life. "Children with ADHD: From Struggling to Thriving" will begin with an introduction the neurobiological and environmental roots of ADHD, followed by an exploration of effective and ineffective caregiving strategies and skills, with a final look at the importance of relationship-based caring. Parents, caregivers, and mental health professionals will walk away with a full "tool-box" of tools and resources to help the children in their lives thrive.

OBJECTIVES:

  • Identifying neurological and environmental factors which contribute to ADHD

  • Exploring triggers which fuel impulsivity and hyperactivity

  • Understanding the impact of a strong, connected relationship

  • Developing strategies and tools to help your child

  • Nurturing emotional intelligence and resilience


Seperate receipts for "psychological services" can be provided for reimbursement under extended health benefits after attendance can be verified

Refreshments will be provided at the event but participants will need to take care of their lunch (a break will be provided between 12:00-1:00pm).

A certificate of completion will be granted to participants at the end of the day.
