Slides from my upcoming Parent Behavior Therapy program (Raising Great Dudes) - ADHD Dude - Ryan Wexelblatt
Last August, I purchased several behavior programs that are marketed to parents of kids with ADHD. I purchased them in order to do research in preparation for Raising Great Dudes, my upcoming Parent Behavior Management (Behavior Therapy) program.
There were two things that stuck out to me about the programs I purchased:
-A "one size fits all" approach that used terms like "these kids", "uniquely wired" to group all kids with neurodevelopmental challenges into one big amorphous group. I don't go for that, I have extensive experience working with kids diagnosed with Asperger's and higher-verbal autism and approach parenting differently with their parents because of my experience. I don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach.
-None of these programs addressed teaching kids resiliency and cultivating independence through improving executive function skills. Some of these programs takr an approach that teaches parents to relinquish parental authority and to accommodate inflexibility through teaching kids they can negotiate to avoid non-preferred tasks.
Here are some more slides from Raising Great Dudes. No release date yet but people on my mailing list will have priority registration, several weeks later I will announce the membership site here. The cost will be $20/month or $210/year if paid annually. The membership site will include Executive Function Crash Course, Raising Great Dudes, and my upcoming webinars. There will also be monthly "office hours" where I'll answer parent-submitted questions.
This is the first Parent Behavior Management program in existence that has been designed specifically for parents of kids with ADHD.
If you want to cultivate positive behavior changes, teach accountability and build confidence this program will is for you, and I can't wait to share it with you.
