This all day workshop will focus on critical aspects of ADHD as they relate to school and home challenges. The first will address basic information about ADD, ADHD and Executive Functions. This will provide ten key ADHD facts, current research on the brain, role of neurotransmitters and a medication update. The second will focus on common academic challenges such as writing essays, doing complex math and strategies to address them. The third session will discuss executive function deficits that are challenging at both home and school, to include getting started, completing homework and long-term tasks, improving organization, being on-time, and addressing sleep disturbances plus intervention strategies. Finally, brainstorming tips to identify problem areas for students who are struggling in school will be given.
