Free Webinar Replay: Maximize Learning in the Classroom: What Teachers Should Know About Their Students with ADHD

In this hour-long webinar-on-demand learn strategies for maximizing learning in the classroom with Chris Zeigler Dendy, M.S.

ADHD behaviors in the classroom are sometimes hard for teachers to understand. Children who act out, fail to follow directions, or don’t complete schoolwork seem to do so “on purpose.” Teachers can’t help wondering why is this smart student not following my instructions and finishing his work? It’s easy to assume—incorrectly—that the student is lazy and just doesn’t care.

Many teachers know that the majority of students with ADHD have trouble completing academic assignments and controlling their emotions, but they may not understand why. Teachers may be surprised to learn that roughly half of all students with ADHD fail to read social cues. As a result, they inadvertently alienate their classmates and sometimes their teachers. This webinar will provide teachers the tools they need to understand and guide these students with patience and encouragement.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What makes a child with ADHD tick—or not tick
  • Strategies and accommodations to make it easier for students to follow directions and do well academically
  • Tips to help students memorize information
  • Why a student with may be more emotionally reactive and how it impacts their ability to learn and control their behavior
  • Guidance to recognize when a student is upset and might have an emotional blow-up
  • Tips for creating an intervention crisis plan to deal with out-of-control emotions
  • Strategies to enhance social skills
