SUPPORT FOR FAMILIES 

Families living with ADHD sometimes struggle to balance the needs (and challenges) of children and parents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder with those of neurotypical siblings, parents, grandparents, and other relatives who may not understand ADHD symptoms.

We provide support to parents navigating the diagnoses, making decisions about treatment, advocating with the school system and finding parenting techniques that work for the family (using evidence based strategies). 

We also provide counselling for children who are struggling with ADHD symptoms.  

Children with ADHD often:

  • Appear not to listen to what is being said 
  • Fail to finish assigned tasks
  • Lost things, especially those things needed to complete tasks
  • Can’t concentrate as well as other children 
  • Are easily distracted 
  • Have problems working without supervision
  • Require more redirection
  • Shift from one uncompleted activity to another Can’t recall what they were told to do or should be doing in a given situation (Barkey, 2021)

 

Problems with inhibition 

Of course, children with ADHD are also likely to have problems with being impulsive. They often:

  • Interrupt or intrude on others and what the others are doing 
  • Talk excessively, often speaking or acting out of turn
  • Don’t think about what they are doing before they do it, acting too quickly on impulse
  • Have difficulty waiting for things and postponing self-gratification 
  • Display their emotions quickly, too strongly
  • Have difficulty anticipating the consequence of risky behaviour

 

WAYS COUNSELLING CAN HELP

  • Improve emotion regulation
  • Increase focus and attention
  • Learn time management and organizational skills
  • Enhance motivation and productivity
  • Cope with stress more effectively
  • Change negative self-talk and self-destructive behaviours
  • Target symptoms of anxiety, depression and low self-esteem
