#178: [workshop] Is it Trauma or ADHD? with Kay Heikes

ADHD, trauma, workshop

Early trauma and childhood adversity cause changes in the brain. Kids with neurodivergent brains often display challenging behaviors which look a lot like ADHD. So how can we tell the difference?

Kay Heikes, LSCSW, specializes in infant and early childhood mental health. She is a Trust-based Relational Intervention Practitioner® and commits her time to help support families learn how to help everyone feel safe, seen, heard and valued.

During this workshop Kay enumerates the similarities and differences between ADHD and trauma, gives treatment options for ADHD, and addresses how to help your child with lagging executive functioning and social skills.
