It happened again. Another call from the preschool or another comment from a family member about your child’s behavior. Your intuition tells you something is under the surface, but your child is too young for an ADHD diagnosis. This is a hard season to be in! It seems like every week, we get messages from parents of younger children who are struggling with constant meltdowns and challenging behaviors. Today, we will share a few things families can do at home AND school (even without the diagnosis!) to help support your child and make life a little easier.
MEET OUR TEAM
We are Lori, Mallory, and Katie. Lori and Mallory are child psychologists, and Katie is a speech language pathologist. Most importantly, we are moms, just like you.
After working with families over a combined total of 40 years, we saw a need to provide ongoing support and education to parents raising children with ADHD. From those who have been on the journey for a while to those who have children too young for an ADHD diagnosis, we are here for you!
We talk A LOT about executive function and what it takes for our kids with ADHD to plan and execute important tasks in their lives. But what about us? The mental load of parenting is real, and there is SO MUCH we have to use our executive functions for. One of those things is meal planning. What does everyone like? What will my kids eat? Which family can have dairy, and which one can’t have gluten? The list goes on and on. We know nutrition is important, but balanced meals take a backseat between school, therapy appointments, activities, and more. That is why we are loving Hungryroot. They offer “good-for-you groceries and simple recipes.” We have loved having one less thing to worry about. As always, we want to help you, so we’ve got a code for 40% off your first box.
