What is ADHD? Q&A (Episode 13)

As part of the DPSS training week in March 2021, Aimee-Elizabeth Parsons and Trevor Friesen did a session entitled “What is ADHD?”. That session was based on Episode 3, which you can watch here. In this episode, Aimee and Trevor tackle some of the questions that they were asked during and after their session.

Some of the topics Aimee and Trevor discuss are:

  • Medication: how they work, benefits, side effects, and more
  • Strategies to help with “explosive” emotions
  • Melatonin and other strategies to help with sleep
  • How to talk to your child about their diagnosis
