Ask The Expert:
Wait! Help Your Child With ADHD Be Less Impulsive
December 1 | 2 PM EST
Kimberly Harrison, PhD
Impulsivity—taking hasty actions without first thinking about the consequences—is one of the core symptoms of ADHD. Your child may do or say things without thinking and end up rejected by peers and scolded often by adults for those impulsive actions.
There are approaches that can help your child to become more aware and take steps to curb their own impulsivity. In this Ask the Expert webinar, you can learn what you can do to increase positive interactions, help your child to be more aware, and provide alternative behaviors.
This is a live webinar and attendees will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Harrison questions after her presentation.
Following this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Explain how impulsivity can negatively impact a child with ADHD
- List ways to help children with ADHD reduce impulsive behavior
