A Davis resident and educator opened a business this summer to help children, adults and parents cope with attention deficit and related disorders. Tomoko “TJ” Vidales owns iROC Education and Family Counseling, which has offices at 907 Third St. and 760 Fifth St. in Davis.
The goal of the consulting service is “to help support individuals with life and learning challenges, as well as those with ADHD and Executive Functioning difficulties, become more Independent, Responsible, Organized, and Confident through practical everyday solutions,” its website, http: www.irocdavis.com, says.
Vidales also runs a free monthly ADHD Parent support group on the first Sunday of every month, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Visit Parent iROC at http://www.meetup.com/Parent-iROC-Davis-CA/ and a monthly Club iROC for adults 18 and older with ADHD or executive function difficulties. It meets on the second and fourth Fridays of the month from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Visit http://www.irocdavis.com/#!club-iroc for information on fees.
Vidales says iROC’s mission is to help individuals with “ADHD, ADD or executive functioning who are often ‘misunderstood’ and/or underperforming due to their many learning and life challenges.”
