Although rewarding, parenting can be a hard job. It’s especially hard when we see our children struggle.

We offer a variety of skill building and educational workshops for parents related to ADHD. These workshops are designed to give parents effective tools they can use to promote their child’s success and improve the overall well-being of their family.

ADHD Parent Workshop

Parent skillbuilding workshops provide specific tools for parents to effectively communicate with their children; to effectively manage maladaptive behaviours; and to nurture the physical, emotional, and mental health of their children. Each workshop covers a different topic, but all build from the foundation workshop Parenting: The Secret, which highlights ways for parents to strengthen their attachment relationships with their children.

A variety of parent support groups are offered throughout the year. Groups may target specific issues, such as managing your child’s anxiety, symptoms associated with ADHD, or ASD.

Anxiety is at epidemic levels among children and teends. This workshop will: promote parent’s understanding of anxiety, teach parents how traditional ways of offering help may unwittingly feed into the child’s worries and associated behaviours, and offer effective tools to help their children manage their fears and worries to become more resilient and happy.
