About this event

This event is intended for parents/caregivers of children with learning disabilities and/or ADHD seeking tools & strategies to support increased learning at school and at home.

Keynote Speaker:  Ann Douglas

Topic: Post-Pandemic Parenting

All kids experience stress and anxiety. These emotions are part of being human, after all. But one in eight children experiences such a high level of anxiety that the child finds it difficult to manage at home or at school. In this thought-provoking presentation by Ann Douglas (a bestselling parent author who also struggles with anxiety), you’ll learn how to tell the difference between stress and anxiety (and why this matters); stress management skills for kids and adults; and anxiety management skills for kids and adults (what makes anxiety better, not worse).

Ann Douglas sparks conversations that matter about parenting and mental health. She is the weekend parenting columnist for CBC Radio and bestselling parenting author. Her most recent books are Happy Parents, Happy Kids and Parenting Through the Storm. A passionate and inspiring speaker, Ann delivers keynote addresses and leads small-group workshops at health, parenting, and education conferences across the country.

The day also includes a choice of breakout sessions led by inspiring professional speakers.
