Support for parents and caregivers
Could your child have ADHD?
ADHD can cause symptoms such as hyperactivity, impulsive behavior and difficulty with attention. This condition becomes apparent in some children in the preschool and early school years. It is estimated that between 3 and 5 percent of children or approximately 2 million children in the United States have ADHD. This means that in a classroom of 25 to 30 children, it is likely that at least one will have the disorder.
Ethan R. Everett, PsyD, a psychologist with Affinity Health System, specializes in diagnosing and evaluating mental and emotional disorders. Dr. Everett has a special interest in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), school behavioral problems in adolescents and adults, and individual, family and marital therapies. Dr. Everett earned his doctorate in clinical psychology from Indiana State University.
Dr. Everett has developed an educational series for parents and caregivers dealing with their child’s ADHD-like symptoms.
The ADHD education program is a six-part series where parents and caregivers can learn more about the history of ADHD, how the diagnosis is made, proven treatment options and answers to specific questions.
At the conclusion of these sessions, you will:
1. know how to be proactive
2. understand positive and negative reinforcement
3. be able to set positive goals
4. know how to work accordingly with the schools.
The first session is free to registered participants and a fee (which is billable to most insurance plans) is required to continue the series.
