The Healthy Connections Medical presentation will be a PowerPoint and Q & A on the library’s polled number one topic requested- Children’s Behavior Health. Pediatrician Jeremy Porter MD, will provide information on common behavior health issues for children that adults may not have thought to be so common. Typically parents and caregivers don’t talk to Medical Doctors about behavioral issues until the children are having problems with performance at school or trouble with relationships, peers or authority. Or, they feel that they are at the end of the rope looking for answers and don’t know where to turn.
Porter will explain issues, symptoms and signals to some common and uncommon behavioral problems. He will offer solutions and information every caregiver will benefit from. Porter said “We are all people, but somehow children’s emotional difficulties can be unexpected by adults.”
There will also be a Q & A session with Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) Nicole Meggers who specializes in mental health therapy with children.
