Winnipeg event to demystify an ADHD diagnosis

September 7, 2017 by  

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition that affects a proportion of the population, and an event that will be held in Winnipeg will provide an introduction to this condition, as well as strategies and techniques parents can use to help their son or daughter adapt to living with it.

The symposium, which will be held in the Niakwa Country Club, will provide an overview of ADHD, as well as its characteristics, diagnosis, comorbid conditions, and how people with ADHD can navigate through a “neurotypical” world. Details and other information about how this can impact a child’s education will be discussed, and there will also be lots of time built in to the schedule for the participants to socialize and network with the other attendees who understand what they are going through.

An assortment of presenters will be speaking, ranging from doctors to teachers, occupational therapists and other experts in the field. The registration fee starts at $40 each, and both snacks and lunch will be provided. Presentation folders full of information can be prepared to give to each person who participates in an event like this.

The event, which will put ADHD front and centre, has been planned for November 9. More details for anyone who is interested in participating can be found on the MATC website.
