Host Jeff Copper interviews Beth Kaplanek, founder and co-author of CHADD's (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) new national Parent to Parent: Family Training on AD/HD which provides educational information and support for individuals and families dealing with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder to navigate the challenges of AD/HD across the lifespan.
Beth Kaplanek, certified parent-to-parent teacher, founder and co-author, is a past president of Children and Adults with Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) and a CHADD volunteer for 19 years. She has three children, one of whom has AD/HD. In 2000-2002 Beth served as a faculty member of the National Initiative for Children’s Health Care Quality (NICHQ), implementing a model of care for the dissemination of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines for assessment and treatment of AD/HD. Since 2006 she has been serving on a subcommittee of the American Academy of Pediatrics for the update of the assessment and treatment guidelines and toolkit for AD/HD. Beth is a co-author of CHADD’s new national parent training program entitled, Parent to Parent: Family Training on AD/HD. She has a bachelor’s degree in nursing and is a practitioner of rehabilitation in Pilates.
Most importantly, Beth is a mom who believes that “knowledge is power.” The most important thing a parent can do is find the answers to their questions and learn strategies to build the skills needed to calm the waters at home and help their children develop the tools to succeed.
