By helping your child and your child’s teacher support their executive functions, build motivation, and reduce overwhelm you will help your child gain confidence and find success at school.

This e-Book is an Introduction to ADHD at School

We will build understanding of the 3 core areas of impact: Executive Functioning, Motivation, and Overwhelm. Followed by targeted strategies to support each area.

I have included my favourite tried and true strategies to request on learning plans and IEPs. These strategies have been tested by the hundreds of children and teens that I have worked with.

There is a step by step break down of how to work with your child’s teacher to set up a plan for your child to take movement breaks.

You will also learn the basics of escalation planning if your child struggles with either external (meltdowns) or internal (anxiety and panic attacks) escalations.

School and ADHD

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is defined as a neurological disorder. What we know about ADHD is that individuals with ADHD are typically smart, creative, problem solvers. They also have a brain that is wired differently. The differences in the ADHD brain make things like focus, executive functions, self control, and regulating emotions more challenging.

The biggest key to supporting children with ADHD is remembering that many of the behaviours that these children display are not intentional. They are symptoms not behavioural choices. Starting to create a shift in mindset can be transformative for parents, teachers, and children. Children that are frequently blamed and shamed for behaviours they didn’t mean to do in the first place are more likely to lose the motivation to keep trying to manage their executive functioning challenges. This leads to lying, explosive behaviour, anxiety, low-self esteem, depression, emotional meltdowns and more. The biggest impact anyone can have on a child with ADHD is building a connection, treating ADHD symptoms as symptoms (focusing on preventing next time instead of consequencing the now), and developing understanding and empathy.
