Product Description
This handout provides information about what ADHD is-and what it isn’t- in easy-to-understand language. It also identifies eight common problem areas associated with ADHD, recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics for treating ADHD, as well as information about how ADHD can be addressed at school. The Understanding ADHD series is a powerful resource to empower educators and parents with the knowledge they need to help students who experience issues with inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, learning problems, executive functioning, defiance, aggression, and peer relations. 11% of children ages 4-17 have been diagnosed with ADHD, making it critical that educators and parents are well informed about the educational implications of the disorder.*

The Understanding ADHD Series is designed to provide parents with specific information that they can use to help their child to develop in an area of weakness. The Understanding ADHD Series is the perfect handout for parent-teacher conferences, IEP meetings, or in the context of I&RS or RTI meetings. The ADHD Series provides answers to questions parents are asking and unites teachers and families as partners in education- because in a perfect world, that's how it should be!

This download is for the Overview handout from the Understanding ADHD Series.
