March 2013 Training Update
Victoria

from Kerry Cooney Author and Founder of Every Day with ADHD

Author Kerry Cooney

Providing this information to parents and individuals is important to us. As we communicate primarily by email, and in an area only once, could you please pass this on through your networks and client base. Thank you

Welcome to our March Training Update!!!

2013 finds us in Melbourne, ready to present workshops around Victoria.

I will also be travelling interstate so, if you have an interest in a workshop or on site Professional Development at your agency or school please let me know. I will then allow extra time in your State and area to accommodate your requests

I am also visiting New Zealand this year

New Zealand Update

Every Day with ADHD continues its expansion in New Zealand.
The last 12 months have seen a New Zealand Manager & 6 Presenters trained just in the North Island.

Here is a TIP

Aggressive - Assertive, forceful, will not back down, justice for all.

"Without deviation from the norm, progress is not possible." - Frank Zappa, musician

This week instead of raising your voice, stop, then lower your voice more than usual.
This helps stress levels, voice box and I believe the child may listen. (So will your others)
