Event description
This full day workshop will bring knowledge and understanding of ADHD, and provide school and home strategies

About this Event

Our topics for the day will be as follows :

Introduction to ADHD This presentation will begin with a review of ADHD, dispel myths and refocus the understanding of ADHD to that of a neurodevelopmental disorder rather than a behavior disorder. The course will include a look at standard DSM 5 symptoms, the variety of presentations, levels of severity, and how they impair a child’s daily functioning.The Impact of ADHD on Learning and executive functioning Have you wondered why children with ADHD struggle in the school environment? While ADHD is not a learning disability ADHD can significantly impact a student’s ability to learn and impair their academic achievement. We will cover the impact of ADHD symptoms on classroom functioning, typical presentations of ADHD symptomsseen in the classroom and some that may be commonly overlooked will be covered.

ADHD in the Home, Parenting and Behavioural Strategies

ADHD is not due to lazy parenting! In fact parenting children with ADHD requires far more time and energy and the use of specialized skills. Some guiding principles and general messages to parents/ care givers will be reviewed before we look some specifics of how to interact with and monitor children with ADHD.
