Class Experience

Students will learn about some of the possible advantages of their ADHD. 
I have been teaching for more than 15 years, and I have a Master's degree in education. Coursework in understanding and teaching exceptional students was required to complete this degree. 

I have also had many students with ADHD in my classes.  I became known for my approach and success with students who struggled with their ADHD. Whether it was my high-energy teaching style or just the soft spot I have for these students, they have seemed to excel in my class.

Recently I have become more interested in this topic. After some research, I gave a presentation on this subject matter to the staff in my home school assistance program. It was my goal to inform and also to encourage teachers to look at students with ADHD through the positive lens that they deserve to be seen in. It occurred to me that students who have ADHD could really use this information as well. Perhaps if they knew more about the benefits that can accompany their ADHD, they may be better able to harness them and feel better about themselves as a whole. 

It is my hope that after taking this class, students will see their ADHD as less of a burden and in a more positive light. 

Note: Class runtime varies. The more students enroll and the more they participate, the longer class will go. Average time is about 40 minutes, but class has run anywhere from 35-50 minutes in the past. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
