Reaching and Teaching the Student with Attention Deficit Disorder: Learn to Manage Executive Dysfunction in the Classroom

ADHD and executive dysfunction go hand in hand. In fact, this disorder presents as a severe deficiency in accessing not only school but spills into home and community life. These students in your classroom are not functioning at the level you'd expect.  On a day-to-day basis you may witness inattention, impulsivity, and emotional dysregulation that isn't in sync with their age and expected developmental abilities. Students with a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder present with these and other symptoms such as lack of self-awareness, intermittent volition, poor working memory and chaotic behaviors. How do we reach and teach these students? Come to this seminar to learn about the latest research, better understand this disorder and to apply strategies and accommodations to help them succeed.
