ADHD Coaching - Who Needs Back-to-School Ads?

Back to School advertisements are designed to sell school-related merchandise. What they really do is spoil the last month of the school holidays, especially if you're a student with ADHD. Each time you hear the latest never-to-be-repeated offers you are reminded that soon you'll be back in the classroom struggling to understand the academic and/or social curriculum presented to you in a format that is often not ADHD-friendly. This can sometimes cause anxiety before the school year even starts.

Preparing for a new academic year can take some of the stress out of going back to school. In order to do so, you need to identify the stressors so that they can be addressed. You also need to understand the part that symptoms play in creating the misfit between school and many kids with ADHD.

In order to help students to make a good start at school this year, I'm holding an information session in February. It will be tailored for high school students and their parents, but parents of primary school children may also find it helpful. Join me as I give a brief outline of ADHD in the school context, and suggest strategies for dealing with ADHD-related challenges.
Cost is $10 per family, to cover the cost of the venue hire.
Session details:
Date: Saturday 13th February
Time: 1pm to 2:30pm
Venue: Wollaston Conference Centre, Wollaston Rd, Claremont.
Cost: $10 per family
