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

The goals of the Parent Education Workshops 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 workshops 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.
