ADHD - Navigating your way through the Maze
In this webinar we have invited 2 ADHD experts (read about them here) to help parents,teachers and carers navigate their way through the maze of ADHD with topics like medication, effective behaviour therapies and the development of a skills framework to best support your child.
Our webinar covers 3 key areas:
- Dr Paul Joshua gives us a medical perspective on what ADHD is and how it compares to ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). He answers our community's questions about when to medicate and the medication options available and shares insights on new meds that don't cause drowsiness.
- Dr Merrilyn Clancy shares strategies to help manage unwanted behaviours like defiance, impulsivity and anger.
- We finish by looking at ways to assist ADHD children at home and school with topics like organisational, planning and social skills to help them succeed at home, school and life.
