Description: Simone Biles. Michael Phelps. Bill Gates. Jamie Oliver. What do these people have in common? All have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). As a parent, it can be overwhelming to learn that you child or teen has a neurodevelopmental disorder, like ADHD. But mounting research has shown that the adverse effects of ADHD can be mitigated with effective supports in the home and school environments. In this course, we will cover the science behind this complex disorder, and discuss ways that this science can inform the parenting of children with ADHD.
