Your voice matters. It's tough to stress just how important it is for you, as an ECE, to support your provincial association and have a voice on issues of importance to you. We depend on the size and strength of our membership to allow us to engage, plan and advocate for system changes and further public investment in the ELCC sector.
The social impacts of ADHD can vary from disruptions at school and work, to negatively affected relationships and an increase in risk-taking behaviour. This workshop provides practical strategies and interventions for caregivers, teachers, and service providers to support a range of individuals (children, adolescents, adults). An overview and understanding of behaviours associated with ADHD will be explored, with a focus on current research. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss and practice interventions to better support individuals with ADHD in different settings. Strategies for skill development in individuals with ADHD are also provided, so they can more effectively manage their own behaviours and relationships.
