    I am a single adoptive parent of boy who is now 11yr (5th grade). His behavior problems started in 1st grade and is now being treated for ADHD, ODD (few CD events), DD. I always knew he had attachment disorder too, but doctors and therapists never focused on that Until this week a therapist suggested the attachment disorder may be primary cause of the other behaviors. That was a first and it made sense. I don’t know much about attachment disorder – so searching internet on this day off. He is sometimes more than I can handle; I’ve had to take him to respite places for a break, but they are hard to find on short notice, etc. etc.

    I’m also a novice at blogs, so if I misunderstand the purpose of this and what is to be shared, just let me know.

    Do you have therapist on Long Island New York?

    A friend has a child with ADHD that is in crisis. The family lives on Long Island New York. The child is biological. Can you offer help directly or make any suggestions for help?

    After going through a number of therapists, my, wife, son and I have found your program outstanding and beneficial. We live in Ohio and have a dynamic therapist named Julie Richards. Julie has really been instrumental in turning things around using TBRI. We attended your webinar about a month ago. It was time well spent. What a learning experience this is. Please let me know what you can do for my friend. Thank you for your help. Sincerely yours, Philip Taylor

    Hi, Philip, thanks for your comment. Our most current list of TBRI Practitioners is always under the resource tab of the main menu, then TBRI Practitioners. There is also a list of resources we recommend to families if you click Resources from the main menu. Unfortunately, we cannot consult individual cases, as we are a research and training institute.

    My name is Karla Woerner and I am parent of an adopted child, and a educator. I am always looking for better ways to help the kids I service at my school, and my daughter. After being in education for 28 years, I thought I knew what was best for kids. My adopted daughter is teaching me there is still much to learn. I recently attended your TBRI Trauma-Informed Classrooms in Fort Worth and learned so much. I came home and tried putting some of your practices to work. I was wishing I had a hotline to ask a thousand more questions when it didn’t quit work like the role play. I am trying to remember that it is a work in progress. Thank you for the work you do with kids.
