Many of the strategies used to help children affected by ADHD manage their behavior can also be helpful for their neurotypical siblings. But their needs, based on ADHD symptoms, can place additional stresses on their parents and families. Learning new strategies for helping children to improve their emotional and behavioral regulation can help create happier relationships for your family members.

Join us to learn about:

  • The role of emotional and behavioral regulation in ADHD and how it affects children with ADHD and their families.  
  • The similarities in strategies for parenting children with ADHD and their neurotypical siblings.  
  • What to do about sibling rivalry and poor behaviors between.
  • Exploring the use of mindfulness skills for improving emotion regulation in children with ADHD, their siblings, and their parents.
