An update for clinicians, counselors, social workers, educators, parents, and caregivers.
Living in a household where a child has ADHD does not just impact parental well-being. Having a brother or sister with ADHD can also be challenging in multiple ways. Research has demonstrated that siblings of children with ADHD experience a range of emotional reactions, including feelings of rejection, victimization, and guilt. Significant distress and dysfunction can be experienced by both siblings and parents, when day to day life becomes unpredictable, exhausting, or ridden with chaos and conflict due to ADHD challenges and behaviors. ADHD is a “family thing”!
In this presentation, ADHD educator and advocate Dr. Jane Indergaard, RN will explore the range of sibling support issues frequently associated in families living with ADHD. Social workers, classroom educators, school administrators, counselors, nurses, and human service providers will gain a deeper understanding of the family impact of ADHD, particularly on the siblings in a household and learn how to guide parents and caregivers to improve family wellness. Armed with evidence-based knowledge, tools, and simple strategies, families will thrive, and not just survive when living with ADHD.
Review the nine facts regarding known facets of ADHD as a neurodevelopmental disorder.
Describe the known dynamics, stressors, and disorder-specific challenges of managing neurodiversity, specifically ADHD, for parents in a household.
