Help! Your Child has ADHD workshop - teachers, counsellors, parents - basic
Does the child lose attention; is hyperactive; impulsive?
ADHD affects 5 per cent of the population. This is a disorder that affects every aspect of a child’s life. The struggle with lack of focus, poor impulse control and hyperactivity not only cause academic problems, but also in the family and socially.
Learn what the symptoms look like; for educators learn how to approach parents, to whom to refer and what to tell them. We discuss some techniques for managing ADHD in the classroom.
A pdf of a booklet: 'My child has ADHD. Help!' is supplied after the webinar.
Attending the webinar.
Once booking and payment is made and confirmed a link to join the webinar will be sent by email. Attendance of the webinar will be recorded when the attendee uses the link to join in. Any workshop material required will be supplied.
Here are suggestions on making sure one's webinar attendance is successful:
View it preferably on a desktop computer, laptop or tablet, i.e. it is helpful to use a keyboard; note that you will be prompted to download a free Zoom app (the webinar software we are using, similar to Skype); this would apply also for a tablet or smartphone;
Use a stable internet connection like ADSL or 3G; note all communication will be on VOIP, i.e. not per telephone call;
If you have not attended a webinar before please test your connection beforehand; the session will be open before the scheduled time to ensure all are able to join in time;
We will generally not have the video feed (from the computers' cameras) on for all participants to save on bandwidth / data for all participants; it also helps to make data transfer more stable;
Generally we would only have the presenters’ microphone on; questions can be typed in the chat section; participants’ mics would be un-muted when verbal inputs are to be made;
A link to join is sent to one's email that was used to confirm one's booking. When the link is clicked it will open up a box where you can click to launch the Zoom session; type in or change your name when prompted thereafter if it is not already there.
