Using Compassion & Understanding to Raise Resilient Children with ADHD with Vivian Dunstan
This online talk will provide you with a solid foundation from which to understand ADHD, help you to embrace a positive attitude, which is so important for parent-child relationships, and empower you to work together with your child to cope with the many difficulties of ADHD by offering practical, workable strategies that will make a difference in the lives of all family members.
ADHD is not caused by poor parenting, but it is widely recognised that ADHD-specific parent training, can help improve symptoms for the child, parental stress, and family life in general.
