Children with ADHD often present challenging and disruptive behavior at home.

The goals of the Parent Education groups include improved parent-child interaction, creating a more structured and predictable home environment, and better home-school coordination. The topics include use of positive attention, homework strategies, as well as the educational rights and learning styles of children with ADHD.

The groups run for six weeks each and sessions are 75 minutes in length. The groups are lead by a licensed clinical psychologist. 

Sessions are designed to build upon one another, therefore it is imperative that all sessions be attended. Individual make-up sessions may be available.

Referrals for services may be made one of two ways:

  1. If your child has not been evaluated by a MIND Institute clinician please call Julaila Musgrove, New Patient Referral Coordinator at 916-703-0308.
  2. If you are currently receiving services at the MIND Institute or the child Behavioral Health Center, you may have your current treating practitioner/evaluator make an “in-house” referral.

You may contact J. Faye Dixon, Ph.D. at 916-703-0265 or fdixon@ucdavis.edu for specific questions about the clinic services. The MIND Institute accepts some private insurances or self-pay. The groups are appropriate for parents with children ages 4-11.
