Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

For the past 13 years, I have worked with students with special needs, specifically those with challenges with ADD or ADHD from pre-k through high school (and even college!). I have a great deal of experience working with students with ADHD and my Masters coursework focused on supporting students with attention and hyperactivity challenges. I have attended multiple professional development workshops on supporting students with ADHD challenges and tutored a student for 6 years as well who was diagnosed with this condition. I approach every single child and his or her needs from a strengths based lens and work with their individual learning style and attentional needs. Ensuring that students with ADHD find success in school, homework, and more has been a passion of mine since I began working in education.
