"I have had the pleasure of seeing/hearing you speak several times. What great advice. After all the years focused on helping my 13 yr old daughter (ADD and learning disabilities), your talks were a breath of fresh air."  ~Lori H, IL

“I thought that Elaine & Diane were amazing - I have already successfully defused a major meltdown with my 7 year old by following their advice this evening.” Practical Parenting Telesummit participant

We regularly provide live, interactive, virtual presentations to groups of parents, counselors, educators, etc. These engaging presentations allow local groups to provide world-class training using the magic of modern technology.

"Your presentation was fantastic! Every time I hear you I pick up something new, or I realize the importance of something I’ve heard before." -Marian S, GA, US


“Using the internet, ImpactADHD spoke to our school district's parents about bringing calmness to our homes. In just 1.5 hours, we viewed parenting of our complex kids from a different perspective. We'd love to have you speak to our group again!” -Iliana M, Avoca School District, Chicago, IL
