The inattention, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity of students with ADD/ADHD present constant challenges to educators. For example, a child that may be close to success in learning can hinder himself and even the whole class due to his difficulty focusing. Or a positive group activity might be derailed by the need to meet the demands of another student’s ADD/ADHD. It is crucial to understand how to identify, respond to, and manage the behavior so that it serves – rather than stifles – any student’s educational progress.

This webinar will be invaluable to staff struggling not only with groups affected by traits of ADD/ADHD, but to all staff who face any problematic student behavior. It will offer clear strategies to handle disruption and its impact on other students, will detail classroom management techniques for students affected by ADD/ADHD directly and indirectly, and will identify learning methods that benefit all students. In addition to the classroom-wide methods we’ll discuss, we will also explore unique ways to influence specific children to manage themselves differently.

Please join John Jensen, licensed clinical psychologist and education consultant, for a webinar designed to help teachers and staff manage students with ADD/ADHD. While geared specifically toward students with these traits, the techniques identified in this indispensable session will help even the most experienced educator use new approaches towards behavior management that can be applied to any difficult student or group dynamic.
