Parenting and Promoting Growth in Kids with ADHD
Parenting can be joyful and fulfilling, but it can also be challenging and stressful. Parenting a child with additional needs is even more challenging, and for that reason, specialised strategies are often needed. ADHD WA is offering a 6-session group intervention focused on additional parenting strategies for ADHD, at a cost of $80 per session for members of ADHD WA only. This will be a highly practical group with between-session practice tasks, that we hope will be of great benefit to those who attend. The focus is on raising awareness of ADHD behaviours, increasing the chances of the desired behaviour, responding to challenging and undesired behaviour, and using rewards and quality time along the way. Places are limited to 8-10 attendees.
The group starts at 9.30 AM on Friday, October 16th.
The full payment of $480 is requested one week prior to the first session, although we are happy to make alternative arrangements for special circumstances.
Medicare rebates apply – the eligible amount is $32.60 per session. The parents would be attending the group as individuals rather than with their child, therefore, if the rebate were to be claimed, the referral would have to be for the parents.
