Meet the ADHDKC Professional Advisory Board
This month Dr. Tish Taylor is our featured board member. You may have seen her in June when she talked to our Parent Group about effective parenting behaviors that can help kids with ADHD and oppositional behaviors. Dr. Taylor has been an active board member for many years. We appreciate all she’s done behind the scenes in addition to the valuable parent sessions she’s led.
Here’s what you can look forward to in upcoming months:
A combined talk for Parents, Adults, and Adolescents with ADHD & Tics
This October speakers from Tourette’s Syndrome Association will join ADHDKC to talk to adolescents and their parents as well as adults who have tics.

In October there are two opportunities for ADHDKCTeen members to learn!
The first is October 3rd with the parent’s group - all are invited to learn together!
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.
The second is October 10th.
We’ll be talking about ways we waste time and unnecessarily drain energy on October 10th. This is our regular meeting a week later than usual, so you’ll get log in information if you’ve registered for ADHDKCTeen. If you need to register, use the button below.

CHADD and their partners have developed TOOLS to help you teach your child important skills.
CHADD also has Toolkits (different from TOOLS above) to help you learn about ADHD. Learn about school resources, suicide prevention, diagnosis and treatment, and more!
CHADD also has two podcasts that cover many topics related to ADHD.
The ADHD 365 podcast provides expert advice, tips, and strategies for families, adults, educators, and professionals.
The All Things ADHD podcast is a learning resource program of CHADD’s National Resource Center, funded by the CDC, to disseminate expert information to improve the lives of those affected by ADHD.
