Parents whose children have just been diagnosed with ADHD will face a number of challenges in the years ahead. How does a parent begin to know where to start? This 8-week group program will help parents find the compass towards success for the trials and tribulations ahead.

Parents will be informed about:

  • Treatment Options
  • Medication
  • School and Homework Strategies
  • What is the IEP and/or 504 plan process?
  • Punishments and Rewards in the Home
  • Positive parenting skills to deal with ADHD

These groups will directly address the daily frustrations that come with parenting a child with ADHD. Sharing parenting experiences with others can stimulate conversations that can lead to solutions to issues that have been unbearable at home and school. The group can be a great resource to parents who feel like they have done everything possible to create change and are not feeling like anything can work.
