Students with ADHD want to do well and succeed in school. They don’t want to be consistently inconsistent in their daily performance. Yet, poor performance is a predictable result for students who struggle with inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, disorganization, forgetfulness, losing things, restlessness, and emotional reactivity.
These challenges often impair the student’s motivation and the resiliency needed to keep trying through adversity.
As many teachers know, the challenges created by ADHD can impact the performance of an entire classroom. Fortunately, the educational interventions used for ADHD are best practices that have a positive effect on most classroom environments and student performance.
Participants will gain knowledge and skills in:
- Understanding ADHD and the “why” behind the performance problems.
- Recognizing the educator’s role in prevention and intervention.
- Working with strategies that manage ADHD-related problems.
- Managing reactions and other behavioral difficulties.
- Learn how to teach students to use “If-Then” goals.
