In ADHD grandfamilies, grandparents are raising or helping to raise their grandchildren for a variety of reasons — while simultaneously learning how to parent and support a neurodivergent child, often for the first time. So much has changed in our understanding of ADHD and its comorbidities, and grandparents are working hard to catch up and help out.
If your grandchild has ADHD, you likely struggle with kickstarting the morning routine, tackling and turning in homework, doing chores, and even sitting at the dinner table. Navigating your role as a grandparent—whether you’re raising your grandchild or just contributing to childcare—requires patience and energy when your grandchild presents with inattentive, hyperactive and/or impulsive behavior.
In this webinar, grandparents will learn:
- About the three presentations of ADHD and how each can affect a child’s life at home, at school, and in peer relationships
- About evidence-based behavior management strategies to improve interactions with your grandchild
- How to address everyday struggles, such as getting ready in the morning, starting and completing homework, following directions, and balancing screen time
- How to avoid common pitfalls, such as yelling and using escalating threats
Have a question for our expert? There will be an opportunity to post questions for the presenter during the live webinar.
