NJ Center for Tourette Syndrome (NJCTS) Wednesday Webinar Series
Join us for a webinar on Jun 17, 2020 at 7:30 PM EDT
What is burnout? We’ve all likely felt it in some capacity whether at home, in a school setting, or within our job environment. In the current pandemic setting, parents are wearing even more hats than they usually do and have found themselves very swiftly and without much preparation time playing the role of parent, educator, behavioral therapist, and coach. For children with neurodevelopmental disorders, the COVID-19 environment has meant a drastic change from their daily routine and left parents and caregivers feeling overwhelmed and burned out.
Dr. Azlen Theobald of NeurAbilities Healthcare will discuss parental burnout, strategies to help reduce conflict, and ways to manage mental health for both parents and children during this public health crisis.
Dr. Theobald completed her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at La Salle University in Philadelphia with a concentration in child and family psychology. She completed an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited internship at Terry Children’s Psychiatric Center in New Castle, Delaware and has also trained at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She specializes in providing neuropsychological evaluations for various populations across the lifespan, from toddlers to older adults. Areas of expertise and specialization include Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Tourette syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and dementia.
She currently works at NeurAbilities Healthcare in Voorhees, New Jersey (formerly CNNH), which specializes in providing care for those with neurodevelopmental and neurological disorders.
