ADHD / TDAH
Welcome to the El Futuro ADHD Program. From this space, we seek to provide culturally appropriate information and strategies to accompany all those in contact with children and adolescents with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Some of our ADHD services are:
“El Faro” – The Lighthouse: A series of classes for parents and guardians developed in conjunction with the Duke University ADHD Program, where we review different strategies for managing the behavior of children with ADHD. There are eight meetings, once a week, FREE, virtual, and in Spanish.
Videos: On the “Resources” section of this website, you will find a series of videos of less than 10 minutes that we created together with expert mothers, about ADHD.
Mentor Mothers Program: This is a group made up of mothers of children with ADHD who are further along the path and have already gone through some of the situations that other families will go through. They are available to serve as support without judgment, listening, guiding in parenting, sharing strategies, and helping with school paperwork and questions to health professionals, among other things. They are mothers who receive training and continuous supervision from El Futuro to accompany families to advocate for their children.
“El Faro” Advanced: is an open group for those people who have already finished El Faro classes. These monthly meetings aim to exchange experiences and knowledge with other families.
Coaching/Tutoring: individual meetings for parents and children/adolescents with ADHD who are patients of El Futuro.
More materials and resources that we make together with other organizations:
Webinar: Working with Latino Patients and Their Families: For Treatment Professionals
Podcast: “How to prepare your children with ADHD for school success”
Children with ADHD need personalized accommodations for their specific needs to have the best learning experience throughout their school life. In this episode, Tamara Schlez, BA, ADHD coach and participation specialist for the organization “El Futuro,” talks about comorbid learning disabilities, the differences between the Individualized Education Program (IEP) and Section 504, and the different roles that doctors, schools, teachers, and parents have in implementing the tools for a child’s success.
