About the course

This half-day session is broken into three main components:

  1. Happy and Connected: Ensuring the Wellbeing of Students with  ADHD
    Emotional dystregulation can be the most impairing aspect of ADHD at any age.  As children with attentional and behavioural problems struggle with low frustration tolerance, impatience and excitability, their self'esteem can suffer, and they can be excluded by their peers which can worsen their symptoms and be a predictor of later problems in life.  This workshop will provide the latest research and strategies to help these vulnerable children to manage their behaviour, increase self-esteem and build social connections - making school a safe and nurturing space for them.

  2. Partnering with Parents
    Parents of ADHD children may have had negative experiences with the school system in the past.  Additionally, ADHD can run in families and there may be more than one family member living with the condition.  We will explore parents' perspectives and provide strategies to build positive, constructive relationships.

  3. High Impact Teaching Strategies for Primary-Aged Students with ADHD
    Equity means every student getting what they need, rather than every student getting the same.  ADHD students need environmental, instructional and academic adjustments in order to reach their potential.  Strategies to manage behaviour, build social connections, enhance self-esteem and increase organisational skills will be discussed in this interactive session.

Outcomes

At the end of this course teachers will have:

  • Increased knowledge in relation to understanding students with ADHD.
  • Understanding how to best support students with ADHD making school a safe and nurturing space for them.
  • Built their repertoire of practical strategies to improve student well-being, engagement, behaviour, organisational skills and social connections.
