She wrote the books for the Parenting courses and the text for "Colouring Book for Kids with ADHD, their Siblings and Friends". (Dr. Sam Goldstein, a world-renowned expert in ADHD, read the parenting books and wrote the foreword to them). She is the lead coach for Working Memory Training. Other training includes: Simply ADHD, First Aid for Mental Health for Adults Working with Youth and several courses in Working Memory training. She continues to take courses to expand her knowledge of ADHD and mental health in children and youth. She reads information about how ADHD affects adults.
There will be speakers from time to time (may have a cost). We will also show videos about ADHD. Watch this page for more information as it becomes available. Having a child with ADHD is not significantly different than having a child with ex. Diabetes. One must learn special skills to look after either one. Both types of children are prescious and special and both need special care and understanding of their respective disorders. The Diabetes Association helps parents of children with Diabetes, we help parents of children with ADHD.
Join us to learn more from each other, seminars, videos and invited specialists.
We now know that children with ADHD can have successful lives providing they get the correct support and encouragment.
There is help but no cure for ADHD
