Description

Class Experience

In this introductory class, students will look at some common learning struggles in a new way.  They will identify possible strengths of their learning differences and how to use these strengths to learn and feel better!
I have taught secondary students with ADHD and other learning styles for over 20 years.  I earned a Doctorate in Educational Psychology and have Master's Degrees in School Counseling and Special Education.  I have an added authorization to teach students with Autism.
No homework will be assigned but students will be encouraged to practice and keep track of their successes.
A one-page handout will be provided a day before the session starts for students who preregister.  The student can print this to use or follow along, writing on a piece of paper.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
It is best if students have an understanding that they struggle in some way with learning and life skills, whether or not they have ADHD or another learning style.  Please message me if you have any questions or concerns.
Source material creating the foundation of this class includes: Snapshot of ADHD Symptoms from www.ihaveadhd.com; Smart but Scattered Teens by Richard Guare, Ph.D., Peg Dawson, Ed.D, and Colin Guare; and ADHD 2.0 by Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., and John J. Ratey, M.D.
