Come on out and join us for a full day of presentations geared to families dealing with ADHD. Our morning sessions will be divided between the science of ADHD and how ADHD presents at different stages in life, followed by a unique brief presentation by two young adult students speaking about their own experiences and insights in ADHD. The afternoon will focus on effective parenting and home life tips and strategies as well as appropriate accommodations and strategies for the classroom. An open Q&A/ Discussion period will follow where attendees can ask questions and share their insights.
