ADHD: What Every Teacher Should Know

ADHD is a complex brain disorder that impacts approximately 11% of children and 5% of adults in the United States. Extensive neuroscience research tells us that ADHD is an impairment in the brain's self-management system and can greatly impact a student's ability to learn effectively.

During this course, participants will gain an in depth knowledge of what ADHD actually is and is not, understand the 30% rule and how it impacts academic performance and be able to identify common academic challenges associated with ADHD.

Understanding Specific Learning Disabilities

A specific learning disability is a disorder that interferes with a student's ability to read, write and do math. It is estimated that 1 in 5 school-aged children have a learning disability and students with a specific learning disability may struggle in multiple academic areas.

During this course, participants will understand the most common learning disabilities encountered in the classroom, identify teaching challenges, learn how learning disabilities affect classroom behavior and learning, develop strategies to immediately implement in the classroom and discover how IEP's, transition plans and collaborative planning can greatly increase your success as a professional educator.
