Parents are well aware of the added complexities around sleep, anxiety and social skills for children with ADHD. A good night’s sleep is essential for a child to be at his/her best and a tired child is likely to be more anxious and less socially adept. Anxiety, in turn, impacts social and educational skills development making school life trickier to navigate and more anxiety invoking. If left unchecked these contributory factors can lead in to a negative spiral of unhappiness and underachievement. ADHD challenges can be managed and tweaks to better align environments to ADHD needs can have significant positive impacts.
Our speakers are specialists in their respective fields who can provide context and practical strategies to approach these issues with confidence.
