Focused Family Program
This program helps families understand what ADHD is and how to manage its daily challenges. Family participation with all of the members is part of what makes this so special and seems to really work.

Speaking Topics Include:

1. Tools for Teachers and their Learning Different Students (ADHD, Dyslexia, and the related disorders)
So often I hear from the traditional teacher that they have too many students in the class and they just don’t have time to address students with ADHD, dyslexia and the related disorders. This can be challenging, but not impossible. Brain science has shown us how learning different brains learn well. Now is the time to share this information with teachers nationwide. Remember, if you have a classroom of twenty students you will most likely have at least five undiagnosed ADHD children in your classroom. This does not include those that are already diagnosed. During this presentation I will cover teaching tools and strategies for content subject teachers. These tools will create more meaningful learning for all students whether learning different or not.

2. ADHD Throughout the Lifespan
I will cover what ADHD looks like throughout the lifespan from birth, early childhood through college years and beyond.

This talk will be helpful for parents as well as educators. The latest research in the areas of neuroscience and the brain will be presented. It will show how to understand the ADHD brain and how to move this child through the maze of their educational career. I will give tools that the audience will be able to take home and implement on a daily basis to help ADHD work for them instead of against them.

3. AD/HD and Success in College and Beyond
Many college students with learning differences struggle when they leave home for the first time. The colleges and universities have many accommodations in place, but the foundation for success must be laid long before they leave home. Come learn the new technologies and personal tools that will bridge the gap from failure to victory.

4. ADHD ­ Family Dynamics and Classroom Inclusion
Families of learning different children usually find themselves in a very isolated situation when it comes to their child’s education. The mothers often times are perceived as “a helicopter parent” or that parent that is always bothering the teacher. During this presentation I will give a clear understanding of the dynamics of the ADHD family. There is room for the inclusion of all families no matter what their differences. This talk will benefit educators, administrators and families alike.

5. Overview and simulations of ADHD, Dyslexia and the related disorders and what it is like in the classroom.
I will cover just what are learning differences. This will encompass ADHD, dyslexia, auditory processing, Dysgraphia, and general processing. From here I will allow the audience to experience what it is like to go through a day as a learning different student. I will present tools for parents and teachers to help assist this population towards success within the classroom, at home and beyond.

6. Organization and Study Skills for the ADHD student
Who has ever taught anyone how to study? No one! Organization and study skills are one of the biggest challenges for the learning different students. These skills must be directly taught. Traditional teachers do not have the strategies to know how to help this population. This talk will guide both teachers and parents in understand how to impart these skills effective to these students.
