We often talk about how supporting kids with ADHD takes a village. Building your child’s team of professionals is SO important. From educators to therapists and pediatricians, their experience and understanding are key to helping kids shine. Today, on the podcast, we have Dr. Mona Amin. She is a board-certified pediatrician, parenting coach, and mother. In this episode, she shares her perspective on current med shortages, using melatonin, and collaboration between providers.
