Product Description

Gain new insight on dealing with ADHD cases.

ADHD is the most common learning and behavioral disorder in childhood, affecting four to 12  percent of all American children. But understanding the disorder is only the first step. Without early identification and proper treatment, ADHD can have serious consequences, including school failure, depression, conduct disorder, failed relationships and substance abuse.

Luckily this does not have to happen. Attend this 1-hour audioconference with internationally-known expert speaker Esther Williams, LPC, and she’ll provide you with insight and information to assist the ADDer in avoiding most of ADHD’s negative effects -- and becoming the successful person he or she is capable of being. You’ll learn Esther’s creative approach to identify ADHD problems find a solution rather than trying to suppress or punish the behavior.

In this valuable session you’ll learn:

  • What ADHD really is ... and what it isn’t. A closer look at brain function and the need for stimulation.
  • Research on the ADHD brain that can guide you in your interventions.

  • Strategies to help parents keep their sanity with children suffering from ADHD.
  • How to interpret ADHD behaviors as a form of communication.
