Guest speaker Koreen Martfeld will join this month’s Parent Support Group to talk about the Transition to Adolescence for Children with ADHD.
This workshop will examine the different ways that ADHD can present itself in adolescence, and provide workshop participants an opportunity to learn about strategies to manage ADHD symptoms. We will also discuss diagnosis and misdiagnosis, co-occurring (comorbid) diagnosis, and steps to help reduce the risk of future challenges.
