Baptist Children’s Hospital presents program on coping with ADD, ADHD

Your child cannot seem to concentrate in school. It takes hours to complete homework that shouldn’t take that long. You notice a lack of organization at home and school.

Whether you suspect or already know that your child has attention deficit disorder (ADD or ADHD with hyperactivity), join the mother and son team of psychologists, Sally Kolitz-Russell, PhD, and Brent Kolitz, PhD, who will help you cope with parenting a child with ADHD.

The program “Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): What Parents & Teachers Should Know,” will take place on Thursday, May 31, 7-9 p.m., in the auditorium at Baptist Children’s Hospital, 8900 N. Kendall Dr.

They will discuss the myths, symptoms, diagnosis and misdiagnosis of ADD/ADHD; common problems kids have with ADD; strategies for dealing with school, homework and behavioral issues; and treatment options.

The program is free, but registration is required. Space is limited. Call 786-596- 3812 or send email to programs@baptisthealth. net. Note: The program is not intended for children.
