The Parent Education Series Presents: Parent-to-Parent Evening on ADHD and Anxiety

David Roe, M.D, and Jennifer Foster, Ph.D

Join us for two amazing speakers who will answer your questions about ADHD and anxiety. This parent-to-parent session is brought to you by well-respected professionals who are also Schenck School alumni parents. Our presenters will speak briefly about each area, and then we will have a 45-minute question and answer time. Resources for both topics will be provided.
