ADHD SUPPORT GROUP- ANN ARBOR

"Keys to Success and Sanity for School-Aged Children and Adolescents with ADHD and Their Families"

Kristen Chapman

Tuesday September 29, 7:00-9:00 p.m, 3003 Miller RD, Ann Arbor MI 48103 (west of M-14, map)

Our guest, Kristen M. Chapman, MA is a language/learning specialist with 29 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults with different language, learning, attentional, and social difficulties in a variety of settings, including hospital and university clinics, schools, and private practice. Kristen has a private practice in Ann Arbor and is on the faculty of the University of Michigan's Center for the Child and Family where she teaches clinical psychology and social work interns about language, learning, and attentional disorders and their emotional effects. Kristen's particular area of interest and expertise involves helping individuals and families understand the emotional effects of communication, learning, and attentional/organizational problems and how to utilize this understanding in most effectively fostering self-understanding and advocacy, as well as facilitating maximal compensation and academic and social competence. A second area of interest is in helping families build effective alliances with teachers and other support professionals to foster coordinated efforts to support students.

This presentation will focus on promoting understanding of core principles to guide parents and children in dealing with the multiple challenges of ADHD at home, in the world, and at school. Among the principles that will be discussed are: facilitating understanding and acceptance of ADHD symptoms and struggles, establishing realistic goals and expectations, structuring the home environment to facilitate sanity and realistic success for all, team building with your child's support system, and developing advocacy skills.
