ADHD seminar held

There is a daylong seminar on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Wednesday at the Quality Inn at 3838 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

The seminar is designed for mental health, medical and educational professionals but the public is welcome to attend.

“Beyond Ritalin: Mega-Answers to ADHD,” presented by John F. Taylor, a doctor of psychology, provides detailed strategies for classroom, family, psychiatric, residential and counseling settings.

Taylor will discuss academic, psychological, medical and nutritional approaches to dealing with ADHD. Graduate university credit is available and the seminar is approved for continuing education for licensed social workers and marriage and family counselors.

Home and family topics include reducing sibling rivalry, rebuilding family harmony, getting parents out of ignore-nag-yell-punish cycles, uplifting self-esteem, improving social skills, anger control and eliminating conflict over chores and routines.

Health topics include research on organ systems impaired in ADHD, prescribed medications, nutritional options, toxins and allergens which affect ADHD symptoms.

School topics include home-school cooperation, getting homework done, improving performance on long-term assignments and tests and solving classroom problems such as distractibility and fidgeting.

Cost to attend the seminar is $59. For information or to register, call 1-800-847-1233.
