Professional Development Workshop
During this interactive workshop style course, I come alongside teachers to help them better understand the mind of a child with ADHD. We walk through the executive functioning skills that are delayed and align appropriate strategies to implement within the classroom environment so that the student feels both included and supported by both teacher and peers. I will provide strategies to address these 5 areas of struggle: Attention control, cognitive inhibition (tuning out), inhibitory (impulse) control, working memory (processing information) and cognitive flexibility (learning things from multiple angles.) We will also touch on the affect ADHD has on emotional stability and maintaining relationships (friendships.) Together, our mindsets will grow as we explore the mind of ADHD.
Author Visit/School Visit
During this visit, I act as a voice for those who struggle with ADHD. I engage students in an interactive journey through my ADHD story and share what they need to know to better understand the mind of ADHD. I also go beyond and beneath the diagnosis to reveal gifts and a potential mindset shift. I provide knowledge and strategies for peers, teachers, and children who may struggle, to help add tools to the toolbox in their amazing minds! Please note that I am also able to adjust my presentation to share my journey towards becoming an author, or speak on "neurodiversity" as a whole!
