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 as a consequence they are rejected by peers and scolded often by adults.

This is a live webinar. Attendees will hear from Dr. Harrison and can ask 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
