Dale Wisely, Ph.D. is offering his 3-part series on ADHD on Wednesday mornings, October 4, 11, and 18 at 9:00 AM – 10:30 AM at the Charles Mason Board of Education Building, 32 Vine Street, Mountain Brook 35223.
This program is co-sponsored by ALL IN MOUNTAIN BROOK and the school system’s Department of Student Services.
“There is nothing more important to a child with ADHD than to have adults in their lives who understand the disorder,” says Dr. Wisely. “It is as important as any other form of treatment. When adults understand the disorder, the quality of the ADHD child’s life can improve dramatically. Helping us understanding this complex disorder is the goal of this series.”
Here is the schedule.
- October 4, 9:00-10:00AM: Understanding the Disorders
- October 11, 9:00-10:00AM: Treatments and Interventions
- October 18, 9:00-10:00AM: Managing ADHD at Home
This program is intended for parents who want a deeper understanding of the disorder. However, the series has been attended by educators, pediatricians, nurses, and social workers. All are welcome. The program is free–but please register below!
