Do you feel alone in this struggle? There is no reason for any parent to feel isolated. Our programs are designed to help you understand your child’s challenges (parent training), in a supportive environment with other parents (parent support), and with an innovative approach that is particularly effective for complex kids with ADHD and related challenges (parent coaching).
And they are designed with Busy Parents in Mind!
Parenting Programs can help. In fact, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Guidelines* call for a combination of medical and behavioral approaches for treating ADHD/ADD in children. Behavioral treatments are referred to as “behavior therapy,” “behavior management” and “behavioral interventions.” In most cases, they refer to a combination of Parent Training and Behavior Management, which includes systems for management in the home and at school. Behavior therapy does not necessarily mean putting a child into therapy; instead, it means involving a family in learning how to take a behavioral approach to managing your child’s ADD.
ImpactADHD®’s parent programs provide behavioral management training to help you teach your child to become more confident and better-equipped to manage the realities of life with ADD/ADHD and related challenges.
As a parent, you deserve support, expert advice, and a sense of belonging for you and your kids. Our programs will help you understand how ADHD impacts your life, as well as those around you, and teach you to use a coach-approach to create the change you need.
We understand that life in an ADD/ADHD family can be chaotic, and that finding time is hard. Our programs are designed to meet your needs, and your schedule. We are here for you on the phone, online, anytime.
“In 2001, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) published clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of school-aged children with ADHD. The AAP recommended the following: (1) primary care clinicians should establish a treatment program that recognizes ADHD as a chronic condition; (2) appropriate target outcomes designed in collaboration with the clinician, parents, child and school personnel should guide management; (3) stimulant medication and/or behavior therapy as appropriate should be used in the treatment; (4) if a child has not met the targeted outcomes, clinicians should evaluate the original diagnosis, use all appropriate treatments and consider co-existing conditions; and (5) periodic, systematic follow-up for the child should be done with monitoring directed to target outcomes and adverse effects. Information for monitoring should be gathered from parents, teachers and the child.”
