Baltimore County, “Rethinking ADHD: What works, What Doesn’t and Why”
December 12, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Many believe that children with ADHD suffer from poor parenting or lack the moral fortitude to behave appropriately. Nothing could be further from the truth.
ADHD is a physiological disorder of the brain with definite, predictable behavioral consequences. This workshop uses brain scanning technology to illustrate the physiological differences in the development of brains with and without ADHD. Equipped with this new knowledge on the nature of ADHD, this seminar explores how the ADHD brain works differently from non-ADHD brains and provides scores of practical interventions for improving learning and behavior. Participants learn how to become “the surrogate frontal lobes” for their ADHD students and how to change their view of ADHD from a purely behaviorally disorder to a unique brain construct that can be accommodated with highly successful outcomes.
