Community Resources

Parents of Children with ADHD

Over the past five years, Parents of Children with ADHD – A Community Support Group, has been an invaluable resource for parents of children with ADHD in the Greensboro area.  Meetings are held on Tuesday evenings, with three of these in the fall (September, October, November) and the other three occurring in the spring (February, March, April). All meetings are free and open to the public.

Presenters typically provide a one hour presentation, after which there is a 30 minute question and answer period.  A large number and variety of topics have been covered thus far, including home management, school-based interventions, and medication management.

Most presentations are given by medical and mental health professionals from the Greensboro area. Periodically presentations are also given by nationally recognized experts, including Dr. George DuPaul discussing elementary school issues, Dr. Steve Evans discussing middle and high school issues, Dr. Desire Murray discussing after school management, and Dr. Kevin Murphy discussing adult ADHD.

Dr. Anastopoulos served as the group’s clinical advisor from its inception until the spring of 2013. Dr. Erin Morrissey-Kane is the current clinical advisor.

 

Triad Learning Disabilities Association

Another local support group that may be of interest to parents is the Triad Learning Disabilities Association (LDA).  In partnership with Noble Academy, the Triad LDA hosts evening presentations that focus primarily on school-based learning issues affecting children with learning disabilities, as well as ADHD.
