Ask The Expert: Meeting the Needs of Students with ADHD in the Classroom
Featuring Andrea Elrom, MAEd
August 13, 2 PM

Students with ADHD are often bright, enthusiastic, and creative. But they can also display disruptive behaviors in the classroom and need support and redirection.

Too often educators may not have the resources, knowledge, tools, and strategies to help their struggling students. This Educators Edition of Ask the Expert will explore the unique qualities students with ADHD bring to the classroom and what resources are available to support their needs in the learning environment.
