‎Shining With ADHD by The Childhood Collective: #143: Considering ADHD Medication? What Every Parent Needs to Know with Psychiatrist, Dana Reid on Apple Podcasts 02/15/2024

Sharing a very informative podcast answering many questions about ADHD medication. Note, exercise is a primary intervention along with other interventions first (reduce screen time, diet changes, sleep), but meds can help when these other things are addressed and functioning is still impacted across settings. The topic of ADHD + anxiety is also addressed here.

Have you thanked your school psychologist lately?! Many don't even know what a school psychologist does or that almost all public school districts employ them, but they play an extremely important role in our p***c schools. The role varies, but includes evaluation, counseling, and ongoing consultation with teachers and parents to help students with learning and social/behavioral differences thrive. Dr. Gin primarily focuses on private practice now, but has 21 years of experience working as a school psychologist in school districts in the Dallas and Austin areas. Having this background allows Dr. Gin to provide practical recommendations for school accommodations and modifications and to collaborate with school service providers and teachers. Now, go thank a school psychologist!

This is very often confusing for parents and even some teachers. In TX, an IEP includes ARD meetings and individualized goals. 504 does not include “services” but can still involve gen ed dyslexia instruction (though this is moving toward sped now). 504 is basically accommodations to level the playing field for those who need things such as extra time, small group, oral admin or frequent breaks on assessments, but no specially designed instruction.


Some excellent info/tips on EF here…

Get fun stuff done. Get boring/hard stuff done. Get creative stuff done. This is all tied into your executive function skills.


Is it time ⏰for your school to have a better understanding of the past 45 years of knowledge related to executive function skills ?

Does your school have a culture of teaching executive function skills built into the school day ?

Schools with expertise related to executive function skills will have a far better ability to help students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia , dyspraxia, diverse learning needs or any other learning difference.

What is a comprehensive evaluation and why is it important?

A comprehensive evaluation provides an in-depth understanding of your child’s overall level of functioning, including strengths and areas of vulnerability. This includes understanding their cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. This also often includes their academic functioning and how they perform within the school setting. All of these areas are important in better understanding your child to provide appropriate interventions and treatment, as well as recommendations for the home and school settings.

There are so many behaviors that overlap with each other when assessing for specific conditions. For example, "my child does not pay attention" is a common behavior reported by parents. But why is my child struggling to pay attention? Is there a cognitive processing deficit that prevents them from encoding the information? Can there be a possible learning disability? Is underlying anxiety impacting sustained attention or acting out behavior? Are there specific executive functioning deficits at play? There are a number of reasons why a particular behavior occurs, and it is important to look at the big picture to properly answer the question.

At ATX PsychEd Services, Dr. Gin will use multiple sources of information and collect data using a wide variety of assessment techniques. All services are customized to answer your specific referral concerns, and you will receive a comprehensive report of individual strengths and weaknesses as well as recommendations for home and school as appropriate.

Reach out to schedule a consultation if you are seeking diagnostic clarification or to better undertand your child’s cognitive, academic, social, emotional and/or behavioral functioning.
