Most people are familiar with the textbook symptoms of ADHD | ADD — inattention, distractibility, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, yet these symptoms represent only the ‘tip of the iceberg’. Beneath the surface reside some of the most powerful characteristics that shape the perceptions, emotions, and motivations of children and adults living with ADHD. Physicians and mental health providers are generally less familiar with the emotionally based issues within the context of ADHD, which has led to the misunderstanding, misdiagnosis and misdirected treatment. This presentation on ‘The Power of Parenting a Child with ADHD | ADD’ will provide you with a clearer understanding of the ADHD emotionally-based issues and what it ‘feels’ like to live with ADHD – most importantly the power you have as a parent of a child with ADHD. Information from this presentation is intended to help you in joining with your clinical treatment plan parenting a child living with ADHD – and the best part is that you will walk away with a powerful tool to help your child and YOURSELF – it turns into a win-win!!!
