ADHD

{

This year, everything changed…

We switched schools, received a diagnosis of ADHD, started on medications, and discovered Mightier. While the new school and medication have been incredibly helpful and I cannot say enough good things about his teacher, we didn’t start to see a change until we started using Mightier…Mightier has opened up conversations about emotions in our home and we now feel safe and free to express ourselves in a way that honors our own and our family values.
