ADHD and Couples:  Overcoming challenges to create a relationship that really works!

All couples have struggles and challenges, but when one partner has ADHD, the struggles tend to be more frequent and intense.  This presentation will discuss how to get to deeper issues of trust, self-respect, and integrity so that couples can create a relationship that really works for both partners--and why keeping a good sex life is an important part of this process.  Dr. Ari Tuckman will discuss strategies and steps to creating a happier, more intimate and enduring relationship for couples impacted by ADHD.

Creating a strong IEP for your child.

It's a new school year and advocating for your child is on your mind!  For parents of children with ADHD, the IEP process can be overwhelming and downright confusing, yet it is critically important to your child's school success.  Come to this meeting to learn more about the IEP process, how to make sense of the reports and to discuss ways to provide meaningful input throughout the IEP process, so that your child gets the academic and emotional supports that they need.  You will learn simple and effective techniques to use with the IEP team so that you leave with a greater sense of clarity and confidence in your ability to advocate for your child.
