About this event - What will be covered in this session?
There is still so much ignorance around ADHD, especially in Education. Some teachers don’t believe ADHD exists. Others believe that ADHD only applies to boys – the “naughty boys” that can’t sit still, yell out in the classroom and spend their lunchtimes in detention. This leads to many children with ADHD (particularly girls with ADHD) not being diagnosed and being able to access the treatment that they need to engage in, and indeed in some cases, stay in Education. It also exacerbates the very damaging negative self-talk that these children suffer from as a result of being misunderstood.
When you know better, you do better…
So many myths prevail around ADHD that need to be busted. This is the aim of the webinar - to dispel the many myths about ADHD and help you explain your child’s unique brain wiring to others to ensure that your children get the understanding and support that they need to thrive with ADHD.
