ADHD in your classroom-- what is it and how to recognize and teach these students with empathy and effectiveness

Students with ADHD or ADD have unique challenges that may affect their abilities to regulate their behavior, resist impulses and/or accomplish tasks efficiently. ADHD/ADD is a physiological disorder of the brain with definite, predictable behavioral consequences. Participants will be exposed to practical interventions aimed to improving learning and behavior in college classrooms.  This workshop will provide an overview of ADHD/ADD and explore how college educators can support students in learning to successfully manage challenges present in their classrooms.

At the end of this session, participants should be able to:

1. Understand the symptoms, characteristics and treatment of ADD/ADHD
2. Discuss the role of self-regulation as well as habit/skill building
3. Develop strategies to use within the classroom to address the behavioral and academic needs of ADHD students.

4. Understand how APPs, tools and platforms may assist students with ADHD
