Family Matters Presents ADHD
Blackwood, NJ – January 14, 2013 — 5.4 million children between the ages of 4 and 17 are diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and this number increased 22% from parents-reported diagnosis between 2003 to 2007 according to the Centers for Disease Control. Family members and ADHD children often struggle to find solutions to learn, engage and interact on a daily basis.
At 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, January 26th, Family Matters is hosting Dr. Samantha Dawson, PhD and Dori Millisky to speak directly to parents about ADHD. Family Matters is a non-faith based, community outreach program that meets monthly and provides a platform for the community to come together for the opportunity to hear from the experts on how to address common topics, issues and situations that arise in family life.
Dr. Samantha Dawson, PhD has extensive experience as a school psychologist and mother to a child diagnosed with ADHD. She is passionate about helping parents develop positive parenting tips for both school and home that work for ADHD children. Family Matters will also have Dori Millisky, a special education teacher from Washington Township School District, discuss ADHD topics from the classroom perspective.
