“If all you have in your toolbox is a hammer, then everything looks like it needs a nail.”
My mother, Dr. Gaylene Perrault, would always say those words to me. I’ve found them to be amazingly true when it comes to ADHDers.
If all you see is a distracted, impulsive, disobedient and underachieving child, then all you have is a disordered child and who will most likely mature into a disorderly adult.
On the other hand, if you see a child with unique high stimulus wiring that has accompanying gifts, then this paradigm shift may help you in your attempts to transform their Attention Deficits in to Assets.
At Empowering ADHD Parents (EAdhdP), we take a Strength-based approach that focuses on harnessing your child’s energy, creativity, resilience, and natural learning style. To this end, we develop customized strategies designed to that help your child develop the skills to leverage your their unique strengths and learning styles to maximize the giftedness associated with ADHD.
We offer testing for ADHD and a range of co-concurring conditions.
Once we make a thorough assessment, we offer interventions to help you and your child begin to develop the skills to harness the unique strengths that accompany ADHD. To help accomplish this goal, we offer individual, couples and family therapy, “Student Success Strategies” coaching, Business Coaching and professional organizing.
Our goal is to help you or your child make lasting behavioral changes that improves your/their performance at school, at home or at work.
