About This Course

Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are always hearing things like "Try harder," "Pay attention," and "Sit still." And they'd love to do these things—but they don't know how!  

In this course, you'll discover practical ways to help children with ADHD control their behavior and succeed in school. And you'll be learning from the real experts: the children themselves. You'll find out how Kristi controls her behavior and how Wanda handles boredom. You'll see how Adam jump-starts his thought processes, how Harry satisfies his need to move without bothering his teacher, and how Darren aces his homework. 

In addition, you'll hear from parents and teachers about the amazing benefits of relatively simple adaptations in space, structure, rules, and expectations. You'll also explore myths and facts about ADHD and see how this condition affects motivation, activity level, attention, and memory.  

These lessons will arm you with powerful strategies you can put to use immediately in your own classroom. By the time you're done, you'll have the skills and knowledge you need to help students with ADHD compensate for their problems and achieve their full potential.

Note: To receive 25 hours of instruction in the State of Oregon, please ensure your school is eligible to issue professional development units, and that the course is approved by your professional learning coordinator.

Review

Your course has given me tools that help me feel empowered. I often cry out loud (half laugh, half cry) as I read your lessons as I can relate to so many examples and you make me feel so hopeful for my own children and for my students. After almost two years of continually trying and searching for strategies to help my 6-yr old son (even with medication and multiple adjustments for him), I have often felt ready to give up. I have been using many of your suggested tricks (multiple dining room table seats and guided questions) and feel you have given me ideas for strategies to use as he grows and becomes more able to self analyze. Thank you.
