Back to School Advocacy for Your ADHD Child, Part 1

It’s time to head back to school. This summer may have been a summer of discovery for you and your child. Maybe you had testing done, after suspecting that your child has ADHD. With the school year fast approaching you might be wondering, “What do I do after the diagnosis?” and “How do I advocate after I find out my child has this diagnosis?” I, Dr. Tish Taylor, am here to help.

After having ADHD testing in Overland Park, you may find out your child has this diagnosis. ADHD is one of the most widely diagnosed disorders, and we know that the disorder is genetic. This means that if you have more than one child in your family, you may want to consider ADHD evaluations in Overland Park for each child in your family to make sure that learning is optimal for them too.

This blog series focuses on parents learning to advocate for their child after they’ve had ADHD evaluations in Overland Park. It is one of the most common struggles parents have after the diagnosis. With the school year right around the corner, I have put together some simple steps to help you along the way.
