Parent OnTrac Group Program | Term 3 2021 | commencing Wednesday, August 4th to Wednesday September 15th | 5pm – 7pm
Parent OnTrac Group Program is for parents who have a child registered on the OnTrac Tween (aged 11-14) Group Program, OR if you have a child who has ALREADY completed an OnTrac program.
Parenting is a challenging task at the best of times, and parenting a child with ADHD comes with added challenges. Learning to negotiate these challenges is made more difficult by the fact that there are no hard and fast rules, as ADHD can have different degrees of severity and presentation.
Research is increasingly showing that interventions like OnTrac for Tweens and Teens with ADHD are beneficial in the multidisciplinary treatment of ADHD. Tweens and teens can benefit from collaborative interventions, where both parent and child develop strategies to implement in the different settings where challenges are experienced.
The OnTrac Parenting Program is a practical, skills-based course, backed with a comprehensive workbook detailing numerous proven strategies. The focus is on the gradual process of moving away from parenting to protect, and towards parenting to prepare. The objectives of the course are:
- To improve parental management skills and competence when dealing with challenging behaviours presented by teens and tweens with ADHD.
- To provide education to the parents about ADHD in children, including causes, symptoms, and the many different presentations.
- To increase teen and tween compliance with parental requests, directives and rules.
- To create a more harmonious family by the development of positive parenting skills such as consistently providing clear guidance and rules, using fair and just discipline, and a reliance on values-guided parenting behaviour.
- To use collaborative problem-solving strategies and positive communication styles to address struggles.
- To identify and alter unreasonable beliefs or expectations in parents or children that may be hindering the development of positive behaviour.
Wednesdays, 5:00pm – 7:00pm. It is being held at The Niche, 11 Aberdare Road, Nedlands, concurrently with the Tween OnTrac Program (in a different room).
