Are you or someone you know homeschooling kids who struggle with ADD/ADHD? I can’t encourage you enough to listen to this podcast!
Today I’m talking with Dan Marcone who is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Clinical Supervisor, Practice Founder & Director of Seasons Counseling in Orlando, Florida.
The information and tools that Dan shares in this podcast are incredibly helpful. The best part is that you don’t have to know everything about ADD/ADHD to be able to grow your kids who struggle with it.
As homeschoolers, we can feel burdened by the ADD/ADHD diagnosis, but we can actually have an advantage over a traditional classroom setting because we are able to create a learning environment for our kids that helps them thrive and fulfill the good purposes that God has for them. We simply need to be willing to think outside the box and let God lead us as we grow these unique and amazing kids!
Here’s a great quote to remember from today: “Positive emotion builds resilience!”
