Description

PARENTING CHILDREN WITH ADHD 6-WEEK COURSE

6-week course developed specifically for parents/carers managing children with ADHD.

Starting week beginning 30 October 2017 - Day/Time TBA

Most suitable for parents of primary/early high school aged children, but all are welcome.

The goal of this course is to inform and empower parents to work together with their child to cope with the many difficulties of ADHD by passing on practical, workable strategies that will make a difference in the lives of all family members.

An environment conducive to the engagement of parents through non-judgment, empathy and acceptance is a priority. Plenty of time will be allowed to discuss the home practice exercises to encourage parents to support each other in putting these ideas into practice and celebrate their successes.

Topics in the course include:

• What is ADHD?

• How does ADHD affect family life?

• Creating better routines & relationships

• Using rewards & consequences

• Treatment options

• Sleep Strategies

• Managing difficult behaviour

• Working with schools

• Building self-esteem

• Family problem-solving

• Effective self-care

An important goal of this course is to foster solidarity and support amongst the participants whereby they share and discuss their parenting experiences. This in turn can lead to lasting friendships, which offer parents the hope of ongoing support on their parenting journey.

A private Facebook forum will be set up specifically for the group to provide further support and advice for the duration of the course.

The course is presented by Vivian Dunstan - Founder of the Northern Beaches ADHD Support Group, author and creator of the ADHD Guide website, qualified teacher and course facilitator, mentor and, most importantly, an experienced ADHD parent.

Contribution: $180 includes follow-up support via private Facebook forum specific to the group.

Parenting Children with ADHD Course is based on a course developed by the Institute of Family Practice.
