My kid might have ADHD? What does that even mean? Do they really need an evaluation? Who can evaluate and diagnose ADHD? Do we need a specialist? Everyone seems to have a different answer to these questions.
Turns out one of the most confusing aspects of having a child with ADHD is the fact that many types of professionals may be involved in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Because getting an ADHD evaluation can be both time-intensive and expensive, it’s important to be educated about what options exist, what to expect during the process, and what questions to ask the professionals.
In this webinar, Dr. Norrine Russell, founder of Russell Coaching for Students and creator of the Connected Coaching for Complex Students model, will provide parents with the key questions they need to ask before, during, and after an ADHD assessment and diagnosis.
