SPRINGFIELD, Mo — Dr. James Peterson has offered free parent workshops for years, but in 2018 he will host his 4th ADHD and sensory workshop in just under 2 months.
“A lot of parents are coming and they’ve done a little bit of everything, but they are still searching for answers because they aren’t satisfied,” explained Dr. Peterson, who has centered his chiropractic practice around young families.
“A lot of times, we call ourselves ‘The Last Hope.'”
The free workshops are being offered to parents, teachers, and caregivers who have kids with ADHD and sensory issues, but reservations are going fast.
The first 2 events sold out in under 24 hours and people from as far as Chicago have expressed interest.
“What all of this comes down to is the nervous system and that’s what’s stressed out and locked in these kids with autism, ADHD, sensory issues, colic, ear infections, allergies, and asthma.”
“It’s the nervous system, and not many people are talking about that,” explained Dr. Peterson.
According to the event’s website, topics covered include:
- Dr. James breaks all the rules and talks about all the reasons our children need help. From both the outside and the inside, we will help you put together the information you need to know why your child is struggling.
- We’ll give you step by step help that you can use to start making a difference for your child immediately Together we help you learn how to minimize the tough days and maximize the good days for your child at home and school.
- The proof is in the parents who have been where you are. We’ll share with you stories of kids who no longer struggle with with the symptoms of sleepless nights, struggles in school and lack of focus. You can even ask to talk with Perfect Storm parents who will share with you exactly what worked for their child.
The next scheduled workshop with open availability is scheduled on July 17th at 6pm at Mama Jeans in Springfield. You can register and discover more information on their Facebook event.
