ADHD SERIES: 
The AD/HD Journey – What do you need to Know? 

Whether in school, at work, in a family or relationship, the diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can leave one thinking, “Now What”?  ADHD is a complex disorder which historically has been seen as a mere nuisance condition of “spaciness” or “hyperactivity”.  But in the last ten years much has been studied and revealed about it.  To achieve success and avoid potential devastating effects, parents, teachers, coaches, spouses and affected individuals all need to be armed with the right knowledge and attitude about ADHD. Here's your answer to where to go to get informed. In this two hour education class, you will get answers about ADHD causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatments and answers to frequently asked questions.  Offered by demand and for a small fee, this class is an opportunity to get informed and empowered about how to live with, manage, or help someone with ADHD.  For information please contact Jane at red-river-valley@chadd.net

 

Teacher Friendly Training for ADHD
Is your school in need of information and training to help your faculty and staff gain the knowledge and tools they need to manage AD/HD in the classroom?  The Red River Valley Satellite of CHADD offers ADHD FRIENDLY TEACHING - teacher training modules.

 Session I:  

Provides an overview of the latest scientifically researched information about AD/HD, the executive functions and other key symptoms and how this impacts school performance and behavior.  Teachers will be invited to rethink AD/HD from a cognitive perspective and understand how weak executive functions affect learning for a student with AD/HD.  Teachers will come away with a current working knowledge and understanding about AD/HD and its challenges in the school setting.  

 Session II:

An interactive training presentation of the most current evidence based teaching techniques and strategies for helping students with AD/HD succeed in the school setting.  Teachers will discover effective tools for teaching students with AD/HD.  Of note - these strategies are also effective for students with other low to moderate learning challenges.

 The training curriculum is developed and standardized by CHADD and provided in 2 - 1 1/2 hour sessions for a total of 3 hours, which includes time for question/answer and discussion.

About ADHD

The debate about Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is over. And the truth about ADHD is clear. Just about every mainstream medical, psychological, and educational organization in the U.S. long ago concluded that ADHD is a real, brain-based medical disorder, and that children and adults with ADHD benefit from appropriate treatment. A lot has changed in the last 20 and even in just the last five years. Get strategic. Learn more. Increase awareness. Get the facts!
