C.H.A.D.D. (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder) is a non-profit support and advocacy organization formed to better the lives of individuals with attention deficit disorders and those who care for them.
There are 2 meetings at the same time in separate rooms:
April 8, 2013
Parent Group: Dr. Pam McCaskill will be presenting on ADHD in the preschool years. She will review the early warning signs of ADHD and the importance of early intervention. Everything you need to know about what to look for and how to treat the behavior and emotional difficulties during this age will be presented. Early childhood teachers and parents of children with ADHD who have younger siblings may be especially interested in this topic given that ADHD is a genetic disorder that runs in families. Knowing the signs to look for at an early age and what to do while a child's brain is in the early stages of development is crucial in order to help children reach their highest potential both at home and in the school setting.
Dr. Pam McCaskill is a pediatric psychologist with a speciality in ADHD. Dr. McCaskill runs a very active private practice and she is the director and owner of McCaskill Family Services in Plymouth, MI (www.mccaskillfamilyservices.com). She also serves as the professional advisor for ChADD of Western-Wayne County and teaches workshops on ADHD and parenting the strong-willed child.
