Are you wondering if your child could have autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or anxiety? Are you trying to cope with your little one’s difficult behavior? The Lucy Daniels Center for Early Childhood, a Cary-based provider of mental health services for children, will host a series of free workshops for parents looking for guidance on these issues 9:30-11 a.m. on the first and third Thursdays of the month through June 16 (with an additional date on March 24).
The workshop are offered through the Center’s LDC 4 Early Success program and led by Lucy Daniels Center professionals. They are designed for parents with children age six or younger. Sessions at the Lucy Daniels Center, 9003 Weston Parkway in Cary will cover the following topics:
Feb. 18: When rewards aren’t enough. You’ve tried everything from more screen time to popsicles, but nothing seems to help with your child’s behavior problems. What now?
March 3: How would I know if my child has autism? What are the early signs that parents should look for and ask about?
March 17: My child can’t sit still. Does he have ADHD? When is it anxiety, when is it ADHD, and when is it something else altogether?
“Children don’t come with instruction manuals. LDC 4 Early Success offers parents and caregivers special assistance and education in caring for their children,” says Dr. Donald Rosenblitt, LDC executive and clinical director. “The earlier an issue is identified, evaluated and addressed, the better chance of emotional, social and mental health for the child.”
No registration is needed for the free workshops. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (919) 677-1400 for more information. Visit lucydanielscenter.org/programs/ldc-4-early-success for the complete list of 11 workshop topics.
