“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 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.

  • Session I (October 10, 9:00-10:30 AM): ADHD 101: Understanding the Disorders
  • Session II (October 17, 9:00-10:30 AM): ADHD: Treatments and Interventions
  • Session III (October 24, 9:00-10:30 AM)): ADHD: Making Things Better at Home & School

This free program is intended for parents who want a deeper understanding of the disorder. But, the series has been attended by educators, pediatricians, nurses, and social workers.  All are welcome.
