About the Workshop:

ADD/ADHD is a neurobiological disorder, not a behaviour disorder. The goal of this workshop is to cultivate a comprehensive understanding of ADD/ADHD and to present strategies that teachers can use in the classroom.  By developing a deeper understanding about ADD/ADHD, teachers will be able to develop and use strategies that work for different classrooms and diverse teaching styles.
