ADHD and Barriers to Learning: How Working Memory,Processing Speed and Executive Functioning Challenges Impact Functioning
Thu, Nov 17, 9-11:00 AM, Terman Middle School Cafetorium (check-in at Front Office for a visitor badge)
Learn about how children and adolescents with ADHD often have barriers to learning that are outside the diagnostic criteria of the disorder (e.g., weaknesses in attention and impulse-control). Dr. Vivien Keil, Neuropsychologist at Children’s Health Council, will describe why it is crucial to consider these areas, specifically weaknesses in working memory, processing speed, and executive functioning as these are often just as impairing, if not more impairing, than the core symptoms of ADHD, particularly as students get older and the academic demands increase dramatically in middle and high schools. Attendees will learn ways to manage these areas of weakness, with a focus on compensatory strategies that parents and teachers can use to help support their students. Presented by the Parents Education Network
and co-hosted by Terman Middle School and Palo Alto CAC for Special Education

Cuándo: Jueves 17 de Noviembre 9 a 11 AM.
Donde: Terman Middle School 655 Arastradero Rd Palo Alto
Vivien Keil, PhD, Neuropsicólogo Personal y Gerente de Programa Clínico en el Consejo de Salud Infantil. Los asistentes aprenderán sobre cómo los niños y adolescentes con TDAH con frecuencia tienen barreras para el aprendizaje que están fuera de los criterios de diagnóstico de la trastorno (por ejemplo, deficiencias en la atención y control de impulsos). Es crucial considerar estas áreas, específicamente las deficiencias en la memoria de trabajo, velocidad de procesamiento, y el funcionamiento ejecutivo, ya que son a menudo y sin menoscabar, el mayor deterioro, las de los síntomas principales del TDAH, especialmente cuando los alumnos crecen y aumentan dramáticamente las exigencias académicas, como en las escuelas intermedias y secundarias. Los asistentes aprenderán la forma de gestionar estas áreas de debilidad, con un enfoque en estrategias compensatorias que los padres y los maestros pueden utilizar para ayudar a sus estudiantes.
