UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORTING YOUR CHILD OR TEEN WITH ADHDAn ADHD coach and mom of two complex kids with ADHD and other challenges, Dr. Norrine Russell wants you to know that ADHD is not a behavior problem, but a neurodevelopmental disorder; your kids are not just intentionally being “lazy” or “sloppy.” Also, all kids with ADHD are not alike. Some struggle most with starting a task, others with sticking with a task. Some feel paralyzed when they have to make choices among too many options – or figure out where to start when their whole room is pure chaos. But Dr. Russell also knows there are evidence-based practices that can help your child learn to live better with ADHD. And there are professionals who can determine the treatment and supportive strategies that will be most appropriate for your child. Check out our previous episode with Dr. Norrine Russell.
