ADHD impacts a student’s school experience in more than academic ways. ADHD can mean barging in on peers’ conversations, having outbursts in class, and generally engaging in unexpected behaviors. This can lead to peer rejection wherein students don’t get invited to social events and they don’t have friends at school.
We can change this. In this webinar, Brendan Mahan, M.Ed., M.S., will explain how parents can work collaboratively with their kids to improve their reputations, and how to enlist help from teachers. And teachers will learn strategies for supporting students as they work to rehabilitate their image and better understand the unwritten rules of school.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How ADHD can affect a student’s behavior in the classroom, and ultimately, their reputation at school
- Strategies to help your student avoid negative behaviors that can lead to peer rejection
- How parents can approach teachers to enlist their help in ending peer rejection and loneliness at school
- Approaches educators can use to help turn around a student’s negative reputation at school
- Easy-to-understand steps that students can take to end the emotional outbursts and other behaviors that lead to peer rejection at school
