ADD/ADHD Seminars are a psychoeducation-based group for parents of children ages 4 to 12 years
old with Attention Deficit or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The seminars are identified by topics and provide an opportunity for parents to learn more about ADD/ADHD, the symptoms, the research, and its impact on children at home, school and in the community. Seminars are offered on a monthly basis; families can choose which seminars they would like to attend.
The seminars are offered October – June and each seminar is approximately 11/2 to 2 hours. Parents learn to understand the disorder and the impact is has on children’s learning and their behaviour. Trained therapists who are well versed about this disorder provide knowledge and help parents to understand their children’s needs better and respond to their children in appropriate ways.
