This seminar is an opportunity for teachers and allied health professionals to delve into the world of ADHD, gaining a deeper understanding of its challenges and discovering proactive approaches to harness the strengths of these students. Led by Dr Samantha Hornery, Executive Manager Product Innovation and Education at Learning Links, this seminar will delve into evidence-based practices that promote positive outcomes for students with ADHD. We will consider our students beginning school with early signs of ADHD right through to those in our secondary classrooms with very well established traits of ADHD.
From tailored teaching techniques to fostering self-esteem and resilience, you will gain practical insights that enable you to:
✓ Cultivate Understanding: Develop a deeper understanding of ADHD, its impact on learning, and the various ways it manifests in students.
✓ Promote Focus and Engagement: Explore strategies that help students with ADHD manage their attention and engage effectively in the learning process.
✓ Foster Self-Advocacy: Equip students with the skills and confidence to advocate for their needs, fostering independence and self-assurance. This is incredibly important for our secondary students.
✓ Collaborate with Families: Establish a strong partnership with parents and caregivers to create a cohesive support system that extends beyond the classroom.
By the end of the seminar, you will have gained valuable insights and tools that you can readily implement in your teaching practices. By embracing a strengths-based approach and implementing evidence-based strategies, teachers and allied health professionals will leave this seminar with the confidence to create an environment where all students can flourish academically, socially, and emotionally.
