Description :Beyond the Classroom: Supporting Students with ADHD
Presenter: Sandra Mislow, M.Ed.
Time: 4 pm – 5 pm ET, so please make adjustments if you are in a different time zone.
About this webinar Teachers play an essential role in the treatment of students with ADHD, both within and outside of the classroom. After spending almost 40 hours each week with their students, teachers develop a unique perspective of each student’s behaviors and can offer valuable insight to parents and health care providers.
During this webinar, learn how to support your students with ADHD outside of the curriculum and the classroom. Identify the “red flag” behaviors that are important to share with parents, which will in turn help to effectively adjust a student’s treatment plan. Discuss the importance of a positive attitude and other strategies that can help parents create a smooth and stress-free morning at home so the child comes to school ready to learn. Explore approaches for communicating with parents and caregivers so that you can be an effective part of your student’s treatment team and an ally to your student’s family.
This webinar is sponsored by an educational grant from Ironshore Pharmaceuticals. It focused on a primary audience of teachers and educators and is the third in a series. Links to the previous webinars are below.

A new school year brings a lot of different emotions for both parents and children, but all share a common goal to start the year on positive note. During this webinar, we will discuss six tips to start the school year right, tailored to challenges caused by ADHD. You will identify different types of routines to create for your child at home before and after school and how to implement them. You will be able to describe communication strategies for making contact with your child’s teachers and connecting with the school.
The second half of the webinar will explore the steps needed to get added support for ADHD, including the importance of advocating for your child. We’ll discuss how to organize and keep a communication log of the contact you have with your child’s teacher, how to partner with the school to share best strategies for working with your child, and where to find information about your child's rights within the school. Participants will receive a Back to School Toolkit with strategies to implement immediately and the tools to request extra support when needed.
In addition to the live webinar, participants will receive a Back to School Toolkit and access to a recording of the webinar.
