- What new areas may now be areas of need as a result of the pandemic?
- What should be included in a meaningful recovery plan to address the progress that was lost during the pandemic?
Join Rich Weinfeld for a brief presentation and an opportunity to discuss your questions. During this webinar he will share with parents and educators how to communicate the ways to best to provide support for students with ADHD in the classroom, and how to create a meaningful recovery plan to address progress that was lost during the pandemic.

They may also be experiencing anxiety and, for children with ADHD, the adjustment period may take longer. Knowing how to help students is critical.
Webinar attendees will hear from Dr. Richard Gallagher and then participants can ask questions after his presentation.
