Important Update: April 19, 2017

 I wanted to reach out to let you know that I received a call this morning from our speaker. Dr. Patterson has a family emergency and is unable to speak at our meeting tonight about ADHD and Anxiety.    I wanted to share an article with you from about ADHD and Anxiety. I am available to meet tonight from 6:30-7:30 if you want to come to discuss the article and have a conversation about strategies and tools you can use at home.    Please respond to this email to let me know if you are interested in attending tonight.
