ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is one of the “most common neurodevelopmental disorders in childhood” (according to the CDC) that is often carried into adulthood, but research is beginning to show that many children with ADHD often struggle with co-occurring mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression. Each of these diagnoses by themselves can be challenging, even overwhelming for children and caregivers; however, for children struggling with more than one of these diagnoses, it can be even more difficult.

Join us for this webinar where we will focus on understanding what each of these diagnoses are, the symptoms kids can have, and ways caregivers can support and care for their kids. We’ll also spend some time understanding and considering how this can change for children dealing with multiple diagnoses and how to provide the best care.
