Help For ADHD

girl-ADHDAttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurological condition that children experience in a number of ways. They may have trouble sustaining concentration, controlling impulses, organizing tasks, and tolerating frustration. Their ADHD can be particularly troublesome at school, where it often results in learning delays, disciplinary problems, social struggles, and eroded self-confidence. It can disrupt home life, spark conflict, amplify family stress, and leave parents feeling frustrated, drained, powerless.

I have taught children with ADHD, raised a child with ADHD, and been a child with ADHD. Today, I counsel children with ADHD. I work with them to diminish the condition’s negative impact on how they learn, how they cope, and how they understand themselves. I also work with parents to identify effective techniques for helping their ADHD children at home and diminishing the disruption ADHD can bring to family life.

ICARE

I developed the ICARE approach as source of support for the parents of ADHD kids. The ICARE workshop provides parents with proven techniques for helping ADHD children improve their performance at school, their discipline at home, and their skills for self-regulation. It also offers them effective approaches for relieving their own stress and keeping their household calm. ICARE helps parents by equipping them with knowledge about the science of ADHD, the option of medication, the power of attachment, the impact of structure, and the value of advocacy.

ICARE counseling is available through private consultations or the public ICARE workshops I offer in the Chicago area. To schedule a consultation or learn more about the ICARE Workshop, please contact me by e-mail or call 312.405.6745.
