This year I booked a table at a conference for the Oregon School Counselor Association to spread the word about ADHD and find out what the needs are in the school community. I had a great time and talked with some fantastic folks— doing what they can for the families they serve.
Their theme was “Be Your Own Superhero”— the theme felt like an invitation to Jedi-up my table. Jedi are basically superheroes, right?
Plus, I could share my analogy about how ADHD kids are like being strong in the Force: they can be amazing with good, Jedi training, but things can go poorly when they don’t have a guide.
I used this opportunity to introduce my latest offering for families: Parent Consulting Packages. Compared to ongoing coaching, Parent Consultations are a lower-commitment way to get information and advice about ADHD— from someone who is a specialist instead of a generalist. A pediatrician or school counselor are a great place to start, but they can’t afford to focus exclusively on ADHD.
