3 - Key Steps to Follow After ADHD Diagnosis with Tara Hunkin
Tips to Help You NOT Blame Your Child with ADHD

On this week’s episode of The Soaring Child Podcast, we had Tara Hunkin, a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified GAPS Practitioner, Mother, and Founder of My Child Will Thrive. Our conversation revolved around the topics of the key steps parents should take after their child has been diagnosed with ADHD. 

Tara dives deep into subjects such as how she got started in her career in neurodevelopmental disabilities, the holistic approaches for treatment, proper ways of processing a child’s diagnosis, primitive reflexes, gut healing, and much more. 

We are what we consume, and Tara makes sure that parents are well aware of this, especially those with children with struggling ADHD or other neurological disabilities. Tune in, listen, learn, and grow your knowledge of ADHD to better the lives of your children, your friends, and yourselves!

Guest Resources:

Tara Hunkin, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Certified GAPS Practitioner, mother and founder of My Child Will Thrive (website and podcast) author and host of the Autism, ADHD and SPD Summit.

My Child Will Thrive was founded out of the frustration Tara felt when searching for explanations and solutions for her daughter. Doctor visits left her with more questions than answers and she was forced to do the research and find her own way to help her child. Tara’s daughter is now a thriving 18-year-old, succeeding in and out of school.

Tara now supports parents of children with neurodevelopmental disorders struggling to find the right combination of treatments and therapies through educating and coaching them so that they can get the best results for their children while saving time, money and effort.

Tara continues to expand her knowledge by attending and speaking at conferences and is a member of the Medical Academy of Pediatric Special Needs, International Association of Functional Neurology and Rehabilitation, and Nutritional Therapy Association.
