Family-based Group Treatment for Children with ADHD and Their Parents

The ADHD Group Treatment Program consists of weekly groups for parents and children. Parents meet in a group to collaborate with one another and enhance parenting skills. Children meet with their peers to learn the tools and skills necessary to improve their social skills and their well-being. Families are brought together for the last portion of the group to work on a task or review key concepts.
