Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed disorder of childhood, estimated to affect 3 to 5 percent of school-age children and occurs three times more often in boys than in girls. On average, at least one child in every classroom needs help for this disorder. All Montessori teachers know children who have difficulty concentrating, interfere with the work of peers, and require disproportionate "teacher time". These children may or may not suffer from ADHD, but they can all benefit from the unique, developmental, Montessori learning environment. This presentation will improve your understanding of ADHD and related disorders, explain current medical and psychological treatments, and include special information on how a Montessori guide can help any child suffering from attention problems succeed in a Montessori setting.
- Is ADHD "real" or is it the result of poor parenting, food sensitivities or other factors?
- How do children get diagnosed with ADHD?
- What causes ADHD?
- How do doctors treat ADHD?
- How is ADHD managed in conventional schools?
- Is Montessori the right learning environment for children with ADHD?
- What can a Montessori guide do to help a child with ADHD?
Attendees are invited to submit their own questions prior to the workshop.
