Event Description

Part of a Series of Workshops Supporting Children Living with Development Disabilities: A Strengths Approach

Anastasia Galanopoulos, PhD, instructor

What is Attention-Deficit or Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder? How can professionals improve their skills for supporting children (through middle school age) with this type of neurological and behavioral profile more effectively? This program will examine the nature of attention deficits and the subtypes of this neurobehavioral syndrome.  It will review the most current research findings on causation along with strategies for working most effectively with children with ADD or ADHD.  Discussion will focus on a strengths approach instead of a disability perspective. Participants will brainstorm problem-solving using fictional case studies and their own professional/personal examples. The program will also identify specific resources which can inform both professionals and families.


Participants will gain the ability to:


1.    identify and/or discuss current knowledge on the nature and causes of ADD/ADHD

2.    list and/or discuss characteristics of behavior of children with ADD/ADHD

3.    identify examples of strategies for inclusive teaching practice

4.    identify resources for professionals and families working/living with ADD/ADHD
