Inside ADHD Parent Workshop
October 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm MDTCAD$ 10
EXPERT: Tanya Keto M. Ed R. Psych
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders in children. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, organization and time management, controlling impulsive behaviours, or over-activity.
For youth with ADHD, navigating day-to-day can look very different compared to their neurotypical peers, and the classroom environment can pose particular challenges.
Neurological deficits, not unwillingness, keep kids with ADHD from learning and behaving in expected ways. But adults can make a significant difference in the lives and success of kids with ADHD. In this session, we will discuss:
- Red flags, identification, and diagnosis of students with ADHD
- Statistics and outcomes for students with ADHD
- Causes, myths, and facts
- Educational, social, emotional, and behavioural challenges for youth with ADHD
- How you can be a difference in the lives of these youth with appropriate support in place at home and at school
