Is your child diagnosed with ADHD, ASD, or both? 



Provide your child with information:  Help your child understand what has changed and explain it in a way that works for them. 

Provide your child with structure: Try to make a plan for each day.

Provide your child with what is important to them: What does your child really like and what is important to them? 

Look after you: Working hard in a caretaking role while also managing job responsibilities can be challenging.
