About this Course

Course Description

Why is it so difficult for students to pay attention these days? How does a therapist plan an effective session if the student is not able to pay effective attention? How do we support classroom teachers in their understanding of key areas of development needed in order to pay attention?

If these are some of the questions on your mind, then this workshop will be for you. Maude will cover the current trends and thinking around ADHD and the different components of ADHD. Assessment tools will be shared as well as multiple ideas about “what to do about it."

The workshop participant will leave the workshop equipped with practical ideas that will enhance the functions of their clients. Maude will also share her Executive Functioning Questionnaire used as an assessment tool. This workshop will provide the theory and the research, but it also will be practical in terms of providing accommodations as well as intervention for these troubled students.
