Professional Volunteer for ADHDKC and ADHDKCTeen

We're always looking for professional volunteers to speak at ADHKC and ADHDKCTeen meetings, lead a webinar, post a blog or vlog on one of our websites (ADHDKC or ADHDKCTeen) or help with administration.

We meet the first Tuesday of each month at the St. Joseph Medical Center Community Building from 6-8 pm, with the speaker presenting from 6:30-7:30 until January, when the speaker will be from 7-8pm due to many people requesting a later start time. We will push the sign up a half hour later at that time as well, so from 6:30-8 pm.

Volunteers can request dates below and I'll touch base with you soon after you submit your request to answer any questions and to confirm the date. Speakers can choose their own topic as long as it's related to executive functioning, ADHD or the common comorbidities of ADHD. If you want to address both groups, sign up for both slots.

We occasionally ask members what they'd like to hear about, so if you're not sure what you'd cover, see these suggestions.

Topics that have been requested for ADHDKCTeen include:

  • Hygiene
  • Organization 
  • School refusal / poor attitude toward school
  • Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria or poor self esteem
  • Building confidence
  • Strategies for remembering to do homework and to turn it in
  • How to change a negative behavior (lying, binge eating, screaming)
  • Careers
  • Fitting in at school
  • bullying
  • how to focus off medication 
  • focus skills
  • How to advocate for themselves and not be ashamed
  • Self awareness and meditation.

Topics that have been requested for ADHDKC Parent Meetings include:

  • Conflicts that occur when a parent also has ADHD
  • Bridging the gap in communication or guidance with shutdowns
  • How to help our kids stay on task 
  • How to help kids be successful when they don't want our input
  • Medication pros and cons
  • Ways to help with Executive Function Disorder
  • Fear conditioning in western American schools that don't understand natural human cognitive variation. 
    The Psychology of disenfranchisment
  • I really enjoyed the talk on toys and distraction mind games, and would love more offerings like that.
