What Educators don't know about ADHD and Need to

  • September 20, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • ADDitiude Webinar

Given the prevalence of ADHD, every educator should assume they’ll be teaching at least one student with ADHD (diagnosed or not) — likely many more. But, for myriad reasons, few of us receive adequate information and training about recognizing common ADHD characteristics or bringing out the best in students with ADHD.

This webinar will highlight some ADHD facts that educators need to know, and address some of the myths about ADHD in the classroom. Topics include how ADHD might present in girls, the different types of ADHD (and what they might look like in a classroom), executive function and ADHD, working with families of ADHD students, and easy accommodations that will work for ADHD — and other students — in your classroom. We will also address how undiagnosed and/or untreated ADHD, as well as our own perceptions and tolerance levels for ADHD behaviors, might impact a child’s social, emotional, and academic growth.

In this webinar, educators will learn:

  • Commons facts and fallacies about ADHD
  • Surprising ways ADHD might present in the classroom for different populations
  • Why working with families of students with ADHD is important and how to do it well
  • Evidence-based classroom accommodations for students with ADHD (and others) that can be easily implemented
