Join us for CHADD of Iowa Regional Workshops 

A Parent's Role in Managing ADHD, Learning Issues and Life 

Do you get tired of repeating yourself, losing your cool, micro-managing your kids or triggering defensive reactions? You can improve communication and shift behaviors with a coach-approach to parenting. In this engaging, interactive presentation, leading world-experts on parenting and ADHD, Elaine Taylor-Klaus and Diane Dempster, will teach fundamental strategies (that you can use right away) to cultivate ownership and independence — for even the most complex kids. Come with questions -- there will be time for Q & A!
