ADHD and Barriers to Learning: How Working Memory, Processing Speed, and Executive Functioning Challenges Impact Functioning
November 17, 2016
9:00 am - 11:00 am
Learn how children and adolescents with ADHD often have barriers to learning that are outside the diagnostic criteria of the disorder. We will discuss these crucial areas, specifically weaknesses in working memory, processing speed, and executive functioning which are often just as impairing as the core symptoms of ADHD, if not more so. This applies particularly as students get older and academic demands increase dramatically in middle and high schools. Register here.
This event features The Center's Dr. Vivien Keil and is co-hosted by Palo Alto Community Advisory Committee for Special Education and Terman Middle School in partnership with Parents Education Network.
