Driving with ADHD - What Parents Can do!

We wish to thank Pamela Fischer, MLP, Director of NJ Teen Safe Driving Coalition and Thomas J. Power, PhD and Director, Center for Management of ADHD at CHOP for your time, energy, and for sharing you expertise with CHADD of Princeton-Mercer County. 

 

Our speakers have agreed to share their Power Point Slides with CHADD Princeton-Mercer County list members, an open and generous act.  If you would like a copy sent to you via email attachment, please write to me at adhdcoachjane@gmail.com.

 

Given the VERY REAL public health risks associated with Drivers who have ADHD, we decided to videotape the presentation in order to maximize the number of people who can benefit from the information.  Please note:  this does NOT replace attending events in person, as the cure for ADHD is Vitamin “C” (Connections!).   Here is a link:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7oLTd0PeaU 


***********************************************************************************

My child’s teachers don’t understand him! If they knew more about ADHD, and how to teach kids with ADHD, his school experience would be SO much better!”

Do you wish your child’s teachers knew more about ADHD and the best practices for educating students with neurobiological differences?   We have a solution! 

 

KATHERINE MCGAVERN is already a sought-after speaker on ADHD who presents to parents, teachers, and community organizations in the central NJ area.  Katherine is a Chadd-certified Parent to Parent Teacher and a trained ADHD Coach for adults with ADHD. She provides ADHD training to student teachers at TCNJ, and writes for, and sits on, the Editorial Advisory Board of Attention Magazine.

 

Her workshops provide a thorough explanation of ADHD, with specific information on: the ADHD brain structure and its chemistry; the impact of ADHD on behaviors (which are almost universally misinterpreted); the importance of a proper diagnosis; ADHD treatment options; and the impact of ADHD on the Executive Functions which are essential to learning. Her workshops include a wide variety of strategies to help teachers (and parents) deal more effectively – and more positively - with their ADHD students and children.

 

 For further information, contact Katherine directly at k.mcgavern@verizon.net, or call her at609 921 3266.
