For our Annual
Back to School Meeting
our guest speaker will be
Ashley Bourque-Meaux, Ph.D., CCC-SLP
Learn ways that parents and students can work with teachers and maintain classroom focus.
Ashley Bourque Meaux is an Assistant Professor and Program Director at Southeastern Louisiana University. She has worked clinically with early intervention and school-aged children. Dr. Meaux's interests include child language and literacy acquistion. Her research explores effective reading strategies and delivery for students at-risk for or experiencing language and/or reading delay.
This will be our first meeting for this school year, and we hope to see you there!
Learn more about helping children (and adults!) who struggle with impulse and emotional control, sensory issues, and other challenges.
We would really like to have a head count of those planning to attend this meeting. Please take a minute to check your schedule and let me know if you plan to attend. Come to the ADHD side - We will have COOKIES!
The local Chapter of CHADD partners with FHFGBR, GBRLDC, and LaBIDA to host our monthly workshops and support group meetings for families. Topics of interest to those concerned with ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger’s Syndrome and related learning disabilities and challenges will be covered at meetings scheduled for the fourth Sunday of most months during the school year.
Learn more about meetings and plan to attend. Educate yourself about the challenges faced by those with learning disabilities. Be a force for change in the lives of those with these challenges.
Meetings are open and free to the public. Children are welcome at the regular Chapter Meetings if closely supervised. However, this particular meeting might be difficult for small children
Women With ADHD Support
We are very happy to announce that a volunteer has stepped up to organize meetings for women dealing with their own ADHD challenges. The next meeting will be Saturday, March 4 at 2:00. Meetings are held in Room B on the 2nd Floor of the main library on Goodwood. Click here to see the flyer about the meeting, and please share this information with anyone who might be interested.
Research on the ways that ADHD affects women and girls is a growing field, and for good reason. Symptoms are often different for women than for men, and the impact can be different, as well. To learn more about ADHD in women and girls, read this CHADD article, and join Gail Scott and others at the meeting on Saturday!
