Advanced Parenting aims to help families from the beginning of their journey, helping parents to decide when a child needs help, accepting the implications of a challenge, obtaining a correct diagnosis, learning about the issue, building a treatment team and coming up with a comprehensive plan. Dr. Fradin explores how a child struggling can affect the entire family dynamic including the parent’s relationships and offers ways to optimize the outcomes for their family and make their day-to-day life easier. Parents will feel seen, supported, and better prepared to be both a parent and a caregiver.
