What do we do when our child gets an ADHD diagnosis? How do we best support a child with ADHD? As a mom of a child with ADHD, as you’ll hear in this episode, getting a diagnosis was relief and fear of the unknown all wrapped into one.
In this week’s episode, I speak with Dr. Sharon Saline, Psy.D., clinical psychologist and author of the award-winning book, What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids for Success in School and Life and The ADHD solution card deck.
Dr. Sharon specializes in working with children, teens, young adults and families living with ADHD, learning disabilities, high-functioning autism and mental health issues.
Her unique perspective comes from being a sibling in an ADHD home, combined with decades of experience as a clinical psychologist and educator/clinician consultant. This helps her in guiding families and adults towards effective communication and closer connections.
Listen in as we talk about:
- What is ADHD?
- The three types of ADHD
- How to help our kids build working memory
- Why understanding extrinsic vs. intrinsic motivation is important
- Dr. Sharon’s 5 C’s of ADHD parenting approach
