Every teacher has students with ADHD and executive function deficits. ADHD is a frustrating neurobiological, developmental disorder that significantly affects the lives of millions of children and their families. In the classroom, inattention, lack of self-control, forgetfulness, poor organization and time management skills make learning more difficult for the student, and instruction more difficult for the teacher.
Neuroscience has greatly increased our understanding of ADHD and the executive function deficits that underlie the academic and behavioral struggles of these students. Learn how you can apply this new brain-based knowledge to help students pay attention, improve on-task behavior, be more productive and less disruptive.
Join ADHD expert Sandra Rief for a 2-hour webinar on what you need to know to effectively teach students with ADHD and executive function deficits, Sandra will share a wide range of up-to-date, research-based behavioral, instructional, and academic strategies and interventions that can easily be adapted to your grade level and classroom. These supports can be used with any students who display behaviors associated with ADHD. Sandra will also share many valuable resources with you!
