helpful tips for parents overwhelmed by the challenges of raising a child with unique learning needs

Families, are you overwhelmed with the challenges of raising a child with ADHD, autism, or learning disabilities? Or are you like so many families who are wondering if your child may be an alternative learner, but just aren’t sure?

Even if you are just looking for some ways to connect with your child and restore some peace and balance to your home.. This episode is just what you need to hear. 

Dr. Sharon Saline, Psy.D., is a licensed clinical psychologist and top expert on ADHD, anxiety, learning differences and mental health challenges and their impact on family dynamics. 

In this episode, she brings her unique perspective as a sibling of a child who wrestled with untreated ADHD, combined with decades of academic excellence and clinical experience, and uses it to guide families as they navigate from the confusing maze of diagnoses and conflict to success and deepened family connections.

She guides us on what to look out for to recognize when a child needs extra support and gives a few questions to ask yourself if you are uncertain about whether you should see a counselor or therapist.

Dr. Saline also shares with us her “Five ‘C’s of ADHD parenting:” 

1. Self-Control

2. Compassion

3. Collaboration

4. Consistency

5. Celebration

And how we can incorporate them into our parenting DAILY. 

Most importantly– This episode is to provide hope to families who are overwhelmed and feeling hopeless and to remind everyone that every single child is a unique and beautiful learner.
