ADHDKCTeen for middle & high school students
ADHD can impact social skills in kids, teens, and adults.
Impulsivity, inattention, and hyperactivity are the three main symptoms of ADHD that can impact all areas of a person’s life, including how they socialize.
We’ll talk about how to improve social skills and build relationships at our December meeting.
New this December: sign up for the event so we can anticipate how many will be there in person and online. *If insufficient numbers sign up for the in person option, it will only be available online.
