October is ADHD Awareness Month. I recently had the opportunity to submit questions for a “virtual interview” with TODAY Show contributor and education expert Michele Borba, Ed.D., and Elaine Taylor-Kraus, a professional parent coach who was diagnosed with ADHD herself and has three children with ADHD. They speak from first-hand experience and give tips and strategies for parents of children with ADHD.
These two national Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) education and parenting experts are a part of a new online resource called Making Moments,which offers a holistic approach to managing ADHD .
Despite all the discussion about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in the news, there is far less conversation surrounding positive support for parents and caregivers of children with ADHD.
ADHD is the most common neurobehavioral disorder in childhood, affecting over 5 million children in the U.S. Families affected by ADHD may be prone to conflict and increased level of familial stress.
While ADHD is a chronic condition, it can be treated. An effective treatment plan may include behavior therapy, medication, and parent and child education.
Watch this video to see how they answered the questions I asked:
