Does your child or teen struggle with making and keeping friends, speaking in front of others, or joining group activities? It’s common for many children and teens with ADHD to have experienced significant negative feedback and criticism from others about being different. Concerned about rejection, embarrassment, and exclusion, they often feel misunderstood and lonely. The maturing ADHD brain, with its typical challenges of missing social cues, impulsively saying the wrong thing, or having big emotional reactions, intensifies these issues. As parents, it’s tough to watch them struggle. You may feel uncertain about how to intervene, powerless to help them, and frustrated when they refuse to support you. In this webinar, Dr. Sharon Saline, award-winning author, international speaker, and consultant, will show you how to assist your child in learning how to participate more fully in social situations with greater confidence and less self-criticism. After explaining how social anxiety works, she will offer practical tools for teaching kids how to engage more effectively with peers and adults at school, at home, and in life. You will leave this webinar with useful strategies to improve your child’s conversational skills, ability to initiate and foster friendships and increase their self-esteem.
