ADHD symptoms affect children in the classroom in a variety of ways. The three presentations of ADHD include primarily hyperactive/impulsive, inattentive, and combined. Some students display the behaviors of just one presentation, while others slide among the three presentations at different points during their lives.

Psychologist Jeffrey Katz presents information that will help teachers and ADHD coaches to know how students are affected by their symptoms and provides proven ways to help students be successful at school.

Objectives

Upon completion of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • List the symptoms of the three presentations of ADHD
  • Recognize how symptoms affect children individually
  • Explain effective accommodations and interventions based on how a child exhibits symptoms in the classroom
