DIG Coaching Presents "ADHD Parents Raising ADHD Kids! How Does That Work?" on Attention Talk Radio June 15 with host Jeff Copper and Dr. Patricia Quinn
Parenting calls for structure, organization, and consistency. While that’s true, it flies in the face of an ADHD parent raising ADHD kids. What is an ADHD parent to do? Dr. Patricia Quinn will be giving ADHD-friendly parenting advice in her interview with host, Jeff Copper, attention coach. The show provides tips on how to make doable what seems insurmountable.
Dr. Quinn is a developmental pediatrician in the Washington DC area. A graduate of the Georgetown University Medical School, she specializes in child development and psychopharmacology. Dr. Quinn has worked for over 30 years in the areas of ADD/ADHD and learning disabilities. She gives workshops nationwide and has appeared on many television programs, discussing the issue of girls and women with ADD. Dr. Quinn appeared in the video aired on PBS titled, "OUTSIDE IN: A Look at Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder." She also produced and appears in another well-received video, "ADD: Transition to College - Passport to Success" for the National Attention Deficit Disorder Association. She received the CHADD Hall of Fame Award in 2000 for her outstanding service to the field of ADHD.
Dr. Quinn is the author of several best-selling books on ADHD, including "Putting on the Brakes: A Young People's Guide to Understanding Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder" for children aged 8 to 12 years, the companion workbook, "Putting on the Brakes Activity Book for Young People with ADD (ADHD)," and the "Best of Brakes Activity Book."
