Sometimes it is more fun and effective to learn in a group. Learning and doing together may be just what you need to succeed.
At the Thinking and Doing Skills Center we offer group classes for students from lower elementary through high school on ADHD, organization, productivity, self-management skills and study habits. Each group is limited in size to assure each student’s needs are met and their questions answered. Group learning helps students realize that their challenges are not unique and that with a little guidance they can figure out how to work more effectively.

New! Thriving with ADHD in the Family: Do you really understand what ADHD is and how it affects your child? Often times you get the report back from the neuro-psych exam and it is filled with facts about what is wrong. You already knew that, that is why you had the testing done in the first place. What you really need to know is how to best help your child and your family be successful and happy.
Would you like your child to develop the skills to become more independent? Here is some of what we will cover in the five week class. Learn about what ADHD is and what it isn’t and how Executive Function skills can impact your child’s ability to succeed. There are strategies to help improve communication and cooperation as well as, organization, homework and studying strategies. If you are tired of being your child’s planner, reminder, and project manager, then it is time for a change. Next class starts in January 14, 2020 at 7pm.

New for 2020:
Moms and ADHD:
Whether you’re co-parenting or going it alone, whether you have ADHD yourself, and/or you’re parenting a child with ADD/ADHD, as a Mom and a woman, you need support that you may be unable to receive at home or from family and friends. This program is really about addressing the challenges YOU are dealing with versus the challenges your child faces. Class starts in March 2020.

Dads and ADHD:
Whether you’re co-parenting or going it alone, whether you have ADHD yourself, and/or you are parenting a child with ADHD, as a Dad, your needs will be different from a mom.
