Meet the ADHDKC Professional Advisory Board
This month Lindsey Leach is our featured board member. Lindsey was a fabulous Adult’s Group Coordinator until she stepped back to resume her education toward a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling. She continues to serve on our Board and remains active behind the scenes and helping at Parent Group events. We appreciate the energy Lindsey has brought to ADHDKC!
Here’s what you can look forward to in upcoming months:
November Parent Group Event

Medications are the first line treatment recommended for those with ADHD, but side effects sometimes affect treatment or lead to stopping treatment.
The risk of not adequately treating ADHD is real, so learning how to manage the side effects of medications is important. In this talk you will learn:
the most common side effects of medications
actionable steps to take for each of the most common side effects for better tolerance
identify when it’s time to change the treatment plan

ADHDKCTeen for middle & high school students
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. Sign up for our group once and each month you’ll get information about how to join us.
When: November 7th at 7:30 PM online
