Our Lady of Peace to Host Free Seminar on ADHD in Children
Louisville, Ky. (September 22, 2014) — The Kosair Charities Children’s Peace Center at Our Lady of Peace, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host a free seminar on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) on Thursday, October 9 at 6 p.m. at Foster Traditional Academy, located at 1401 S. 41st Street in Louisville.
This free workshop will explain how ADHD impacts children beyond impulsivity, hyperactivity and inattentiveness. Virgina Gilpin, LPAT, LPCC, will lead the workshop.
“The effects of ADHD are far reaching,” said Gilpin. “Beyond the impact on schooling, it can have consequences on a child’s social interactions and development. We’re hoping to give parents the tools to raise well-adjusted, happy kids.”
This seminar is part of Peace for Parents, an ongoing initiative that provides 60-90 minute seminars throughout the year on various topics. Upcoming seminars include:
- “Managing Difficult Childhood Behaviors at Home and at School” – October 21
