DESCRIPTION:

When a student has a difficult time settling down, staying still as long as other children, or paying attention to the task at hand, adults become concerned. Should this student be assessed for ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)? This session will uncover the underlying dynamic of an over-activated alarm system that contributes to these symptoms. While a diagnosis may help, ultimately it is how we “see” the student, as one who is facing too much alarm and usually too much separation, that will lead us to find interventions that will help in the long term.

PRESENTED BY:  Eva de Gosztonyi
