A significant percentage of children who have ADHD are also highly intelligent and in the gifted community. Many of these students do not receive direct services, such as resource room or skills training, to address or remediate weaknesses in their attention regulation and executive function skills. Educators and related service providers are not often taught how to understand the struggles students who are gifted and yet have ADHD face as they approach learning and behaving in the classroom. Viewing ADHD as a neurobiological disorder rather than a character deficit, this workshop presents the latest research and best practices to remediate and support students with ADHD and executive function weaknesses. Participants will gain user-friendly skills, strategies, and techniques to support students at the point of performance while teaching self-regulation. Learn about subtle changes in the environment that will improve time management, working memory, motivation, and emotional regulation to benefit all students, not only those with ADHD. We will explore strategies to strengthen emotional and self-regulation skills to help improve problem-solving and advocacy skills in school and at home. Take advantage of the latest research and evidence-based best practices to get students motivated, focused, organized, and performing closer to their true potential.
