Calling all Middle and High School Students!
ADHDKCTeen is our group for middle and high schoolers.
This group meets on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 7 or 7:30 PM unless otherwise noted. Meetings are always online and some also allow for gathering in person at Horizon Academy in Roeland Park.
We use Mentimeter to help facilitate interaction from both those at home online and in person. (Note: students need a phone or tablet to participate in the Mentimeter discussion and friendly competition if they’re attending in person.)
Sign up to save your seat and get an invitation to join us on Zoom - you only need to register once to join any of our meetings. Topics are chosen by the participants and in May we had several requests, so this summer and Fall we’ll tackle them each one at a time.
October - Two Events!
Driving with tics
From passing your driver’s education test to addressing law enforcement, teens will learn the basics of driving, explore what it means to drive with tics, and how to talk to police officers and EMTs about Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders.
Join a driver’s education instructor, an occupational therapist, and a young adult with tics as they walk- or drive- you through this important session for anyone with tics.
When: October 3, 2023, at 7:00 PM
Where: Online - since this is with our parent group, you will need to register separately with the button below.
Are you drained? Out of time?
We're all busy. Sometimes it seems there isn't enough time to do what needs to be done. In October we'll talk about ways to improve our efficiency and take back time!
When: October 10th at 7:30 PM
Teenagers have a tough time managing all the things. Rapid growth (brain and body), hormones, peer pressure, and all added challenges of the past few years of pandemic life. Add in the challenges of sensory processing, and it can be quite overwhelming.
We’ll talk about sensory processing at our November ADHDKCTeen meeting.
When: November 7th at 7:30 PM
