When a child has ADHD and one or both parents are in military service, finding the right doctor and the right supportive services can be much more than challenging. Following the parent or parents in service to a new state or a different country can mean leaving health care providers, supportive services and educational accommodation plans behind.
Where can a military parent turn for help? What resources are available?
Heather Hebdon, founder of Specialized Training of Military Parents (STOMP) (full name hyperlink: http://www.stompproject.org/about.asp) will discuss available resources, educational rights and how to find help when one or both parents are active service members during this Ask the Expert Webcast for military parents.
Medical, educational and supportive services may be differently available to service members' families. In addition to the needs posed by ADHD, families cope with deployments, changing work schedules and stresses not experienced by their civilian counterparts.
Ms. Hebdon will cover the basics of finding help for children affected by ADHD and co-occurring conditions and take questions from participants on STOMP is a federally funded Parent Training and Information (PTI) Center established to assist military families who have children with special education or health needs and is funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
