School can be challenging for kids, parents and teachers! When children have a learning difficulty, school can be so much worse. This has been shown to be associated with increased rates of anxiety, depression, criminality and suicide. So how do we best help these kids? As health and education professionals, we are in a unique position to make school FUN! So what works best?
Join us for a lively discussion on how to identify, investigate, support and encourage these kids.
Is your child having difficulty with behaviour or concentration in the classroom?
Have you noticed that he is very active and has trouble sitting still?
Could this be ADHD or is he just busy?
Come along to hear Dr Christie talk about what is and isn't ADHD. Learn about behavioural strategies that will help and when medication should be considered.
Is it ADHD?
Resilience is the buzzword of the moment.
Kids don't have it - parents want to find it!
But where did it go? And why has it gone?
How can we give it back to our kids who we are nurturing, teaching and leading?
We are healthier and wealthier than any other time in history and yet our kids have increasing rates of anxiety, stress and unhappiness.
So what can we, as health professionals do to help?
Come along for some creative brainstorming to see how we can affect change.
