SHINING WITH ADHD 

EPISODE #122: ADHD Evaluations: More Prep, Less Stress!

The Childhood Collective

8/16/2023

 

SUMMARY

Before any family vacation or road trip with kids, we know that a little prep can make the trip a lot more manageable with a lot less stress and frustration. Whether it’s leveraging their favorite snack or having enough downloaded episodes of Bluey, kids need tools for the experience. The journey of the ADHD evaluation process is no different. In this episode, we share how a little preparation will ease any stress you or your child might have about the process AND give you confidence in the results that you get. 

We are answering your burning questions we hear all the time. From, “Should I give my child their ADHD medication on the day of the evaluation?” to, “How do I explain an evaluation to my child?” we have got you covered!

AFFILIATE INFORMATION

We talk a lot about emotionally healthy kids, and sleep is a huge part of that! That is why we LOVE Zenimal. When bedtime rolls around, we use this screen-free meditation tool for EACH of our kids (really, we do!). It’s amazing for kids who are feeling anxious or need a little help calming their busy body before bed. The best part? Each meditation ends with the most beautiful message: “You’re a good kid!” Use our code: TCC for a discount.
