Back to School with ADHD: Out of the Box Approaches
September 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT
A FFF back-t0-school webinar on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in foster, adoptive and kinship families!
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders identified in children. Prevalence is even higher in children and youth in foster care, kinship care and in adoptive homes. ADHD also co-occurs with many other mental health and disability diagnoses.
Join Kelly Henderson, Ph.D, Executive Director and Beth Spivack, MSW, Family Support and Outreach Director of Formed Families Forward for a free virtual workshop. The session will address unique characteristics that impact identification, delivery of services and parenting of children and youth with the condition. Recent policy guidance that impacts the eligibility for school and post-secondary accommodations and supports will be reviewed, and practical strategies for parenting and advocating for students with ADHD will be offered. Time will be provided for questions and discussion.
