Collaborating with Your Child’s School to
Develop Effective Behavioral Plans and Classroom Strategies
Presented by: Yamalis Diaz, Ph.D.
Monday, April 6, 2015
Effective behavioral strategies are a key ingredient in the recipe for academic success among children with ADHD and behavioral difficulties. In order to maximize learning and academic productivity, parents and teachers should be well-versed in the types of accommodations and strategies that minimize the difficulties children with ADHD struggle with in the classroom, and when completing homework. Moreover, it is essential for parents and teachers to collaborate in the development of general behavioral plans, 504 plans, and/or Individual Education Plans (IEP)
In this presentation, you will learn:
§ Specific classroom accommodations and strategies to help children with ADHD
§ How to collaborate with your child’s teachers in the development of behavioral plans
Join us for an exciting evening where you will learn how to collaborate with your child’s school to develop Effective behavioral plans and classroom strategies.
