Workshops for Parents

Understanding and Supporting ADHD for Parents: Develop understanding and empathy as we deep dive into the ADHD brain. We will focus on understanding the why behind the challenges that children with ADHD face in 3 key areas of executive functioning, overwhelm, and motivation. Then we will focus on how to implement research based strategies to support your child on their journey to thriving with ADHD.

Parenting in the Digital Age: Develop understanding, awareness, and confidence navigating parenthood through our current digital age. Together we will dive into topics such as the neurological challenges of combining development with screens, the positive side of the digital age, safety issues, making a screen time plan based on the age and stage of the child, and the unique challenges of smartphones.

Managing Meltdowns: Learn the basics of child-centered meltdown prevention and management. Discover the difference between Meltdowns and Tantrums and learn strategies for prevention, what to do mid-meltdown, and how to stay calm and support your child before, during, and after a meltdown.

Workshops for Educators

Understanding the ADHD brain for Educators: Dive deep into the ADHD brain to create understanding and empathy and then learn the basic framework for supporting your students with ADHD. Participants walk away with a research based list of the best adaptations for students with ADHD.

Supporting ADHD in the Classroom: How we can apply understanding, adaptations, and inclusive strategies to support children of all ages to thrive in the classroom. In this workshop teachers will learn how to create basic escalation plans, how to prevent many challenging behaviours, calm down strategies for students of all ages, and more.
