Webinar: Focused Approach: An Expert Explanation of ADHD in the Classroom

RECAP COMING SOON! Our recap will be posted in this location on Thursday, November 21st, 2013. Stay tuned!

As a parent, are you questioning if your child's lack of interest in academics is more than just a learning curve? As a teacher are timeline-rev1you curious about identifying and understanding the attention-related symptoms one or more of your students are exhibiting?

When it comes to behavioural disorders, the symptoms vary not just from child to child but from setting to setting as well, so on this call we're taking a more focused approach and examining ADHD in the classroom specifically.

Heidi Bernhardt, RN (of the Centre for ADHD Awareness Canada) returns as our Guest Expert to deliver this 75-minute call, where listeners will learn:

  •  The impact of ADHD on learning, cognitive  impairments and student achievement 
  •  How executive functioning impairments (working  memory, organizations skills, and time management) affect a child with ADHD in school 
  •  How to understand ADHD as a neurological impairment 

Plus, a special Q&A session will take place at the end of the call, where listeners can pose their academic-related ADHD questions to Heidi!
