ADHD Dude Parent Crash Course is a 3 or 6 session course that provides parents with practical strategies to help them help their child improve executive function skills and social skills. Unlike online ADHD Coaching or online courses, Parent Crash Courses gives parents what they need most-practical strategies.
Part 1 (sessions 1,2, 3) of Parent Crash Course focus on executive functioning and building age-expected independence. Part 2 (sessions 4,5,6) focus on helping parents of boys improve their social skills from a male perspective. You may take Parts 1 & 2 at a discounted rate or sign up for Part 1 or Part 2 separately.
We offer three separate versions of ADHD Parent Course for parents of children in elementary school, middle school and high school.
