Parenting

HADD-ADHD Ireland Ireland’s support organisation for people with ADHD, is delighted to let you know that internationally renowned expert Fintan Regan who is also a former teacher and principal for children with ADHD will be delivering a full day course which will deliver a range of practical strategies to support learning, behavioural and socialisation objectives within schools and the home environment.

We will also focus on how teachers and parents and carers can work in partnership to meet the needs of children and young persons with ADHD and co-existing conditions.

Something beautiful happens when you set expectations for your child with ADHD based on who they are and where they are today. It’s called success and happiness.

 One thing I keep telling the parents of kids with ADHD who I work with — coaching clients and online course students —is: Place the parenting rulebook in the rubbish bin, please. This is my No. 1 priority for parents raising kids with neuro-atypical challenges.

Parenting is hard enough for neurotypical people! It is even more challenging for those who have ADHD. Impulsiveness, forgetfulness, disorganization, time perception issues and distractibility, among other symptoms of the condition, make the tasks involved in running a household and raising a family much tougher.
