8/24/23 Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist & author presents, Learn the ADHD Game of Life!
What makes the difference between a disability and an asset? Authors Cynthia Hammer, MSW, Executive Director of the Inattentive ADHD Coalition (www.iadhd.org), and Katherine Ellison, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author will teach you how to play and win the ADHD game of life, so you hold a winning hand. You will learn why is it commonly said, that if you have seen one person with ADHD, you have seen one person with ADHD. We vary greatly and, in our presentation, we explain why this is so. This seminar is for adults, parents, educators and clinicians. Attendees will gain insight into how each ADHD journey maybe more difficult or easier when compared to others. Hyperactive, Inattentive and Combined types of ADHD will be addressed Both Hammer and Ellison were diagnosed with ADHD late in life and will highlight their talk with personal examples. Hammer is the author of the soon to be released Living with Inattentive ADHD and Ellison is the author of several books including Buzz: A Year of Paying Attention.
Date TBA (Possibly 9/14/23) – “Lights, Camera, Action!” How to Use Video Modeling to Teach a New Skill, Joanie Garro, MA, BCBA, CT joaniegarro.com
Use of video modeling, scripting, and bug-in-ear technology are evidenced based approaches to teach social skills and other adaptive skills at home, community, and school/work. Highly visual learners benefit from breaking down a skill into small steps, practicing the skill, video recording the skill, and then watching themselves or others perform the skill in a movie. You will learn how to become a film maker using tools such as your phone, camera, or tablet to create your own movie clips. The videos can be used for the learner, the instructor/therapist, and the parent as a teaching and assessment tool. Ms. Garro has worked with individuals of all ages with Autism, ADD/ADHD, Down Syndrome, and other exceptional learning styles for over 30 years. She started, FILM CLUB (inclusive social skills group) in 2006 using video modeling and scripting to teach various skills. She uses this concept in her private practice with families and districts.
