* Friendship Challenges of Kids with ADHD (Conversation Hour)
Wednesday, June 22 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm (Eastern US time)
For children, the most difficult part of having ADHD is often the social challenges it creates. They often have hearts of gold, but their impulsiveness and lack of awareness of social cues can get in the way of making and keeping friends. Join Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore for an informal question and answer session about practical ways to help your child with ADHD navigate the social world.
