Episode Description

Students who have ADHD and other executive functioning deficits are often misunderstood by educators. Chances are they have late or missing assignments, and they procrastinate on long-term papers and projects. Students’ frustration with learning, organization, time management, and planning may be perceived by teachers as laziness or disinterest. This disconnect may lead to less-than-desirable academic outcomes for many students with ADHD and learning disabilities.

Teaching the skills these students lack helps them to succeed academically — and in all areas of their lives. Through repetition, self-advocacy, and staying active, students with ADHD and LDs can thrive.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Research involving executive functioning skills development
  • Proven strategies to help students establish consistency and reinforce accountability through home and classroom routines
  • Actionable supports that can help level the playing field

Meet the Expert Speaker

Brandon Slade is the founder and CEO of Untapped Learning, an executive function coaching organization. Slade was diagnosed with ADHD at an early age, but it wasn’t until college that he fully recognized his brain did not work like those of his neurotypical peers. Since then, Slade’s goal has been to better understand the ADHD brain. After teaching special education for 12 years, he started Untapped Learning. Untapped’s mission is to help students with executive function challenges to develop the skills they need to succeed academically and beyond.
