Presented by Gregory Fabiano, PhD, Florida International University
Moderator: Michael Meinzer, PhD, University of Illinois at Chicago
Contemporary approaches to supporting individuals with ADHD in school settings will be presented and reviewed. Specific areas of impairment, long-term school outcomes, evidence-based interventions and supports, and current areas of controversy and additional study will be reviewed. Specifically, the webinar will review how children and adolescents with ADHD have considerable difficulty with experiencing success in school settings, as core features of ADHD are often magnified by the expectations in classrooms. Yet, there are many strategies, supports, and approaches that can help mitigate these concerns and help individuals with ADHD flourish. Practical approaches that can help children and adolescents with ADHD will be presented.
- Describe the current status of supports and interventions for children with ADHD in schools.
- Prepare a comprehensive plan to provide evidence-based support for an individual with ADHD in school settings.
- Apply effective interventions and supports for ADHD within contemporary interventions frameworks utilized in schools.
The webinar is appropriate for pre-doctoral, post-doctoral, and Masters level professionals.
This webinar is free, and a recording will be posted on the SCCAP53.org website. We hope to see you there!
