14 Best Principles for Raising a Child with ADHD

Dr. Russell Barkley is an internationally recognized expert on ADHD and has written multiple books, which many of you probably have on your shelves! 

After serving in the United States Air Force Dr. Barkley obtained his Bachelor's Degree with Honors in Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1973. He then attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio where he received his Masters Degree in 1975 and his Ph.D. in 1977 in Clinical Psychology, receiving the Distinguished Dissertation Award for his research on the effects of medication on children with ADHD. He then attended the Oregon Health Sciences University for internship training in developmental, learning, and behavioral disorders of children. Thereafter, in 1977, he joined the Department of Neurology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCOW) and Milwaukee Children's Hospital where he worked in the Child Neurology Division and eventually founded the Neuropsychology Service at MCOW. He served as its Chief and as Associate Professor of Neurology until 1985. Dr. Barkley then relocated to the University of Massachusetts Medical School, where he served as the Director of Psychology and as a Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology (1985-2002). While there, he established the research clinics for both child and adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders. In 2003, Dr. Barkley became a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina, where he was affiliated until 2017. He is now a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the Virginia Treatment Center for Children and the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center in Richmond, VA.

Advocates in Parenting sponsors its monthly lunchtime (12:00-1:00) Road Map Series, which is designed to offer parents and professionals a guide and tools to use as they navigate the various challenges that children and families experience.

Bring your lunch! Water and dessert will be provided. While there is no fee required for attending this program, a donation of $10 to the non-profit, Advocates in Parenting is suggested.

Advocates in Parenting & Partners in Parenting

Partners in Parenting is a unique hybrid.  You may know us as a mental health practice with highly trained therapists who are committed to helping children and families flourish by focusing on relationship.  Advocates in Parenting, is our nonprofit devoted to transforming systems of care by advocating for change through identifying and evaluating what interventions work best, training mental health and child welfare providers, and advocating for best practices at a policy level.  Our shared mission is to improve outcomes for children by supporting and equipping the adults who care for them.  

Advocates in Parenting (AIP) is already at work in the community.  Our monthly Roadmap Series brings together parents and professionals to learn and share about a variety of topics relevant to families.  Together with volunteers from local businesses, the VCU campus, and HandsOn Greater Richmond, AIP made and distributed over a 100 hand-made thank you cards to local foster parents in celebration of Foster Parent Awareness Month.  And now, we are building partnerships with VCU, the Richmond City Health District, and insurance providers to pursue grant funding for a pilot project to provide early intervention targeting high risk mothers and their infants.
