The University Center for the Child and Family (UCCF) is offering a free Understanding and Managing ADHD in Middle School virtual workshop. The event is 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan 20, 2021 via Zoom. Participants will receive a link to access the online event after they register on Eventbrite.
This free virtual workshop is designed to help parents or guardians of middle school-aged children find resources and learn how to advocate for children with ADHD and learning disabilities. Your child may have received a formal diagnosis already, or you may suspect they have ADHD or a similar learning challenge. Participants learn more about what ADHD is, what it “looks” like in middle-school aged children, how it differs from what you might expect/how it is presented in media, and where to go from here.
While it is free, workshop participants must register to receive the workshop link. Please sign up here to secure your spot: Eventbrite registration.
Participants can expect to learn:
- What causes ADHD.
- What ADHD looks like in middle school-aged children.
- How to support a middle school-aged child with ADHD at home, school, and with friends.
This presentation will include interactive components and a Question and Answer session at the end. To help us better prepare and tailor the content of each workshop, we ask participants to provide their most pressing questions in writing when they register.
