Supporting Your Child with ADHD and other Behavioral, Learning & Developmental Differences

Examine root causes of your child’s behaviors to guide effective and loving interventions to help children feel understood

For parents of kids whose brains are wired somewhat differently than their “neurotypical” peers, managing their distracted, disorganized, and disruptive behaviors can be overwhelming. This is especially true in the age of COVID, when we are all home together so much more and tensions often run high. The key to managing the challenging behaviors of kids with ADHD, ASD and other learning and behavioral differences is to understand the difference between when they are actively choosing their behaviors (when they won’t do something) and when their brain differences guide their behavior (when they can’t do something). Getting a grasp on the root causes and function of your child’s challenging behaviors can help guide effective and loving interventions that help boost their self-esteem and help them feel seen and understood.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The possible motivations and functions of your child’s behaviors
  • Strategies for identifying what your child is trying to communicate via their behavior
  • The importance of understanding the “ABCs” of behavior (Antecedent/Behavior/Consequence)
  • Strategies to identify and construct effective interventions to help shift challenging behaviors

Registration includes access to a recording to watch later and handouts.
