Talk Report - David Pentecost
November 7th 2000 - Birchington, Kent
Parenting the ADD Child, Can't Do? Won't Do?
This evening was a great success and our thanks go to David for a wonderful talk. There were about 140 people in the audience including both parents and professionals.
David was very positive in his remarks about ADHD and its treatment options. He conveyed very convincingly to the audience that ADHD is a real condition. He spoke about how parents are not bad parents and of the various ways we can help both the child and the parents learn to live and cope with ADHD. Using case studies and giving up to date findings David was encouraging and positive. I hope that the many professionals who attended will be able to take what David said and be more able to help families learn ways of coping with ADHD. Thus enabling us all to develop a more positive approach to help those diagnosed to maintain their self-esteem and sense of self worth.
David spoke of the behaviour programme he has developed and written about in his book, Parenting the ADD Child, Can't Do? Won't Do?, details of which can be found on our Book Pages along with our review of the book.
I hope that this evening will help many people develop an more understanding view of some of the problems faced by both the child and the family and that we as a Support Group can develop closer links with those professionals who work with our children.
We have had some very positive feedback from both parents and professionals, which is very encouraging.
Our thanks go to all who supported this highly successful evening including:- Roger Gale M.P., King Ethelbert School, Medeva and BB Soda. Also our grateful thanks go to all those who attended the evening and of course to David whose website you can visit by clicking here.
