Among a parent’s most heart-wrenching challenges is watching a child struggle to make friends or get along on the playground — and feeling powerless to help. It’s not always clear what’s going on and how you can best help, particularly when living with a diagnosis such as ADHD and/or autism spectrum disorder. What social concerns go along with ADHD? What challenges are specific to autism?And what should a parent do when the two conditions overlap?
When parents are armed with the facts about signs and symptoms of ADHD and autism — and how each condition affects a child socially, behaviorally, and emotionally — they can work with the pediatrician to nail down an accurate diagnosis and get the most effective evidence-based supports to help that child thrive socially.
In this webinar, parents will learn:
- the impact of ADHD on children socially, behaviorally, and emotionally
- how autism affects social and behavioral development
- how ADHD and autism impact communication skills
- how to differentiate between symptoms of ADHD and autism
- the most effective interventions for children struggling socially and emotionally with ADHD, autism, or both
