Welcome to ADDitude’s 10-week Success @ School email program — a self-guided course for neurodivergent students and their families.
In a recent ADDitude survey, less than half of educators said they receive formal training to help them understand and effectively teach students with ADHD and its comorbid conditions. Many teachers rely on the expertise and ideas of their students’ families, which is why ADDitude has created this guided, curated email learning series to equip caregivers with accurate, up-to-date information about ADHD, plus realistic and effective solutions to the specific academic and behavioral challenges associated with ADHD in the classroom.
Your training will begin immediately with an introduction to ADHD and executive dysfunction, myths and misinformation that impact learning and self-esteem, and ideas for starting off the school year right.
