Workshop Selections for Parents of Children with ADHD 

  • Parenting A Child With ADHD: Non-Pharmacological Treatment & Support – Dr. Randall Gillis

Parenting a child or youth with ADHD is challenging, but with the right knowledge, supports and tools, it can get easier. In this talk, webinar, evidenced based, practical tools will be provided for parents and caregivers so that they can help their children with ADHD thrive.


  • Practical Tools For Sensory Processing Difficulties In Children With ADHD – Miranda Doherty

Children with ADHD often have other co-occurring conditions, such as sensory processing difficulties, which can make life more challenging. This presentation will describe sensory processing difficulties in children with ADHD and suggest some practical every day sensory self-regulation strategies.


  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder – Dr. Don Duncan

Oppositional behaviour is very common in those with ADHD. In fact, 40% of children with ADHD will qualify for a diagnosis of Oppositional Defiant Disorder. But what is ODD really? This talk will introduce the listener to a new perspective on this very commonly diagnosed disorder. What if ODD isn’t even a real disorder? If it’s not a disorder, what is it? Why does it matter and what can you do about it?


  • ADHD & Self-Regulation In Children – Dr. Megan Smith

Self-Regulation is critical to our well-being, and ADHD is, essentially, a disorder of self-regulation. Self-regulation allows us to control our thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and achieve an overall state of well-being. Unfortunately, self-regulation difficulties are often mistaken for “behavior problems” or negative character traits, leading people to respond in ways that very often contribute to further dysregulation. This seminar will provide important information about self-regulation, including the factors influence it, and how we can help those who struggle with it.
