Parenting a child with ADHD and sensory processing disorder (SPD) is a marathon, not a sprint. There is universal approach because different nervous systems functions in different ways. What’s more, the supports that help your child today may not succeed next time, so caregivers must stock their tool boxes with multiple strategies to help and guide self-regulation. Personalizing your child’s support according to their “sensory profile” will help educate you as a parent, and empower you and your child to develop and insist on using the tools that you know will aid self-regulation.
Neurodivergent pediatric occupational therapist and author Dr. Danielle Delorenzo, a specialist in ADHD and SPD, will empower and educate parents to support their children by shifting to a mindful mindset and meeting their sensory needs.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How to adopt a neurodiversity-affirming mindset that can shift your entire approach to parenting your child with ADHD and SPD
- How to identify your child’s sensory profile to help you use the “just right” supports to meet your child’s sensory needs
- How to determine your own sensory profile and be present and regulated during frustrating interactions with your child
- Tools and tips for parents to support their child’s sensory needs and create a sensory-rich home environment
- Parenting strategies to help your child self-regulate their emotions
