Each child learns in their own unique way, it’s our job as educators and mentors to help each child to the best of our ability in finding their own path of learning. If we can support the many wonderful attributes of living with ADD/ADHD, children will learn how to channel their energy through creativity, leadership, responsibility and friendship. Tonight we will talk about how you can support a child’s needs, through inclusive activities that will strengthen the relationships of the child living with ADD/ADHD as well discussing strategies to assist the child with organizing their thoughts which will make following routines, circle time behaviour and transitions more successful.
Workshop includes a networking lunch, meal is included.
