Teacher to Teacher





Classroom Interventions for the Student with ADHD

Teacher and studentDo you have students with ADHD in your classroom? Every teacher does. Do you feel challenged to find the balance between the needs of your class and helping the student with ADHD learn effectively? You are not alone. If you are a parent of a child with ADHD who is struggling in school, would you like to learn about effective classroom interventions? Then Teacher to Teacher is for you.

Join us for a day-long workshop that identifies common ADHD-related learning problems plus practical classroom techniques, interventions, and the latest research to enhance school success for students with ADHD. Designed for mainstream classroom teachers, Teacher to Teacher will provide best practice strategies in an interactive, hands-on format. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss solutions to common academic and behavioral problems in a "case-based" format. Each workshop is limited to 100 attendees, so don’t wait to return your registration. Each attendee will also receive the CHADD Educator’s Manual on ADHD: An In-Depth Look from an Educational Perspective. This is "the" manual for managing students with ADHD and a fantastic resource.

From theory to practice you will learn evidence-based interventions to manage every aspect of AD/HD in the classroom, including:

  • Understanding ADHD
  • Keys for Academic Success
  • Organizational Deficits and ADHD
  • Effective Behavioral, Emotional and Social Interventions
  • Real Life Challenges: Case Based Problem Solving
  • Designing ADHD-Friendly Classrooms
