What is Parent to Parent?

Parent to Parent: Family Training on ADHD was developed by Linda Smith, Beth Kaplanek, and Mary Durheim over a period of more than two years. Parent to Parent provides educational information and support for individuals and families dealing with ADHD and learning to navigate the challenges of ADHD across the lifespan. Courses are offered in communities across the country. The curriculum was developed by parents who have lived the experience, but who also have had access to the best researchers and practitioners in the country. The entire course takes about 14 hours of time and is usually offered as a seven-week class, meeting for two hours once a week. Participants receive extensive materials to support them, including articles, reference materials, handouts, and homework assignments. The curriculum is very structured and includes information on:

•Overview of ADHD
•Assessment to Multimodal Treatment
•Managing the Impact(s) of ADHD on the Family
•Developing Parenting Strategies and Positive Behavior Interventions
•Educational Rights for Your Child with ADHD
•Building an Education Team:  Bridging the Gap Between Home and School
•Resiliency, Teen Challenges & Future Success

Class options for the Omaha Metro CHADD Chapter are available through both a Webinar and an On-Demand version. Check out the link below for more information.
