Lesson 1: Understanding the Bigger Picture:
In this introductory lesson, we focus on what it means to have ADHD. There are signs and symptoms of what we see on the surface which may lead to incorrect and damaging assumptions. Being aware of what lies under the surface, helps us to develop a better understanding and perspective about the struggle a child is going through. Developing understanding and awareness empowers parents, teachers and caregivers, as well as the child, to effectively manage their ADHD in the present and their future.
Lesson 2: Leveraging the Power of Strengths and Possibility
The most powerful place to begin for a child with ADHD is with their strengths. Many children are often encumbered and shut down by the daily struggles of ADHD. As a result, they lose the self-esteem, confidence and ability to believe what is possible. The reality is a child with ADHD may go throughout the day hearing a dozen things about what they have done wrong and very little if any about what they have done right. Hence the discouraged child. Their sense of self is diminished and they struggle to focus on their greatest asset, their strengths. In this lesson, we explore ways to 'shine the light on what is right' and spotlight and build more momentum around use of strengths and applying small successes to bigger goals and possibilities.
