Praise from Parents
“Thank you so much for all the information. Our son Julian has been evaluated at the beginning of 2018 and since then we are trying to help him using all possible sources we have access to. Your class gave us the most important information we didn’t get anywhere else—the executive functioning skills we need to help him with. Somehow intuitively we work with him every day to achieve emotional balance, to better control his impulsivity, to better follow directions, follow the schedule etc. but now we can better target his needs. Thank you!”
“This series of workshops was invaluable for us in better understanding our child and implementing practical strategies to make everyday life more manageable for her and us. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you!”
“Thanks so much for all that you do, your webinars have helped us so much as a family. So grateful! ❤️”
Dr. Kate J.
“The workshop was extremely helpful by covering the basics about ADHD and then discussing the main areas by breaking them into categories such as school, at home, and screentime, etc. The homework was helpful by making me apply the information directly to my child. The workshop was very well structured and easy to follow. I wish for the future that Dr. Saline will offer more workshops that go into even more specifics in each area, such as screen time, sleep, etc.”
