Young children work to build a foundation in the areas of reading acquisition, math skills, and understanding the social contract. Inside and outside of the classroom, they must learn to control and regulate their emotions, express themselves effectively, and moderate their behaviors. ADHD touches all of these milestones and complicates the picture for parents, children, and educators alike.
As children get older, these challenges do not wane — physical, intellectual, and social organizations grow more complex. These complexities, plus heightened expectations for smooth transitions, place increasing demands on executive functions. Early intervention is key.
In the first of three webinars, Meg Leahy offers practical strategies for supporting children with ADHD in the elementary school years. She will discuss common challenges during childhood, and provide insights, skills, strategies, and resources that deliver results.
You will learn to:
- Identify how ADHD manifests at home, school, and in relationships
- Determine how self-concept and familial relationships are enhanced through clarification of ADHD challenges
- Examine the unique challenges of ADHD during childhood and the impact that ADHD exhibits during this stage for children and their families
- Discover research-based strategies and resources that provide the building blocks necessary to navigate childhood successfully and build healthy self-esteem
- Understand how and when interventions (medical, therapeutic, coaching) should be used for maximum benefit
