I created this PowerPoint presentation on students with a diagnosis of Bipolar and how their diagnosis may effect performance within the classroom, symptoms that may be exhibited and how teachers can best support these students.
Students with mental health diagnoses can be very successful in school when receiving the supports they need. This resource is intended for teacher training / personal enrichment if a student entering your class has a 504 plan or IEP for conditions related to a Bipolar diagnosis. Although the diagnosis of childhood Bipolar is rare, it is important to have professional development tools available on the topic so all students are equally supported.
The PowerPoint cites all research used, and all sources were professional scholarly texts. I want this product available for free so any educator, parent or administrator looking for more information on the topic can help raise awareness on this complex diagnosis and we can serve our most vulnerable students well!
