If you are the parent of a child or teen with ADD or ADHD and are looking for help understanding and working with this condition, please join Dr. Barbara A. Cohen for a highly informative gathering and learn about -
*Understanding ADD & ADHD over the lifespan
*Types of assessments for ADD & ADHD
*Benefits and challenges of using medication
*Is the medication working - how do you know
*Medication titration (dosage adjustment)
*No skill in the pill - what medication can and can't address
*Risks for undiagnosed, untreated or undertreated ADD & ADHD
This knowledge can help empower you to help your child or teen -
*Improve thinking - sustained attention, impulsivity, intrusions
*Improve emotion recognition - theirs and others
*Improve self-regulation - social skills, emotional resilience, negativity bias
*Recognize feelings - depression, anxiety, stress
Like many parents, you may have tried a number of approaches in managing your child's condition. Dr. Cohen has turned her attention to the field of research and protocols for a more comprehensive view of treatment.
In her more than 22 years of speaking with parents as a coordinator for SFV CHADD, working with children, teens and adults privately, and now kids and teens in research, Dr. Cohen has usually found most all with ADD & ADHD to be very bright and creative in their own right. Given the right guidance, they can more likely realize their true potential.
At this gathering, Dr. Cohen will be explaining the evidence-based research approach; providing solid information to help parents guide the treatment journey for their kids and teens.
If you are looking for an evidence-based way to work with your child's or teen's condition, or just seeking more information, we hope you will attend this gathering. Dr. Cohen is available to address your questions and concerns.
I would like to create a community where parents can come and ask questions and get answers from each other as well as benefit from my years of expertise in the field of ADHD.
