Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Executive Function Challenges impact almost ten percent of school-age children.
These students often require more time and attention than their peers, creating additional stress for teachers and classmates.
Children with ADHD often struggle with executive function skills, such as time management, organization, and impulse control, which can negatively impact their ability to succeed in the classroom. In addition, the behavior of children with ADHD can also be challenging for educators.
Professionals who work with students with ADHD/Executive Function Challenges need practical tools, strategies, and insights to help them and their parents manage the social and emotional impact of ADHD, Executive Function challenges, and stress on learning, motivation, behavior, and the family system. These students often require direct support in the classroom even if they receive direct services such as resource room or skills training.
For over a decade, I have provided full-day and ½-day in-service professional development for school districts nationwide. My programs offer resources, education, tools, and strategies to help struggling students and families. The impact on school culture and teacher performance has been profound.
