To help establish an optimal learning environment and support students with ADHD and their families, educators need up-to-date knowledge, in-depth advice, and practical tools that can be immediately and easily implemented.
The School Counselor's Guide to ADHD covers not only principal causes, symptoms, and interventions for ADHD, but also current, detailed information on executive brain function. This comprehensive resource includes a wide range of inclusive practices that help define the multiple roles and responsibilities of school counsellors, such as:
- Providing effective student interventions to ensure individual success
- Collaborating with teachers to deliver instruction, manage behaviour, and facilitate classroom accommodations
- Communicating with parents about student progress and challenges
- Understanding common ADHD medications and their effects on children
Strengthen your work with students and key stakeholders with this resource and ensure that students with ADHD have the support they need to thrive.
