Our Recent Meetings

More great talks kicked off 2020 at the Leawood Pioneer Library.

 

Dr. Simone Moody, a psychologist at Children's Mercy's ADHD Clinic, talked to our parent group on the importance of routines and how to use them effectively. She discussed common barriers families find when setting routines and ways to overcome them.

Graduate students Haley Killian and Jarrod Sotos presented an engaging talk about all the terminology used when discussing ADHD to our ADHDKCTeen group. Students learned various words and abbreviations so that they can advocate for themselves at home, school, and beyond.

Once again we would like to thank our speakers for fantastic learning experiences at the December 3rd ADHDKC and ADHDKCTeen meetings. 

In the ADHDKCTeen room Dr. Toni Cook spoke about social skills. The group talked about communication skills, impulsivity, and hidden disabilities. They also watched videos of Elf, Parenthood, and King of Queens to pick out expected and unexpected behaviors. The top left image shows the worksheet they used for one activity.

The parents in the ADHDKC room heard Dr. Tiffany Arrington and Dr. Karen Jordan from the Jordan Psychological Center talk about Executive Functioning. Parents learned how kids typically develop executive functioning skills and how those skills are often delayed in kids with ADHD.
