Learn about ADHD at free class Sept. 25

Swindells Resource Center of the Columbia Gorge is offering a free class, “ADHD: What families need to know,” Wednesday, Sept. 25, from 6-9 p.m. at Columbia Gorge Community College’s third floor lecture hall in Building 2 at The Dalles campus.

The class will be led by Aaron Tabacco, a neurodevelopmental nurse specialist, training coordinator of nursing, and researcher with expertise in family management of childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center at Oregon Health and Science University.

Tabacco is driven in part by his personal experiences as a father of adolescent sons who each live with ADHD. His presentation will include:

  • n The biological origins, treatment options and social difficulties of ADHD
  • n ADHD as a difference in executive functioning
  • n Parenting and advocating for your child with ADHD

This workshop is free thanks to the generosity of Swindell’s donors and partners. For a certificate of attendance, there is a $25 fee, and the certificate can be purchased at the workshop by cash or check.

The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
