Mary's teachers say she just isn't working up to her ability. She doesn't finish her assignments, or just puts down answers without showing her work. She sits and fidgets in class and often disrupts class by interrupting others. Sometime, she daydreams a lot and seems distracted.
Does Mary have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), is she gifted, or both?
Gifted students may be defined as ones who have “exceptional abilities in any area of learning that significantly exceeds grade-level expectations.”
Dr. Hollowell said that “ADHD is not so much a disorder but rather a collection of traits and tendencies – some positive, some negative – that define a way of being in the world. If the negative aspects become disabling, then this way of being in the world can become a disorder”.
Using the strategies from this course, you will be able to support ADHD, Gifted and Twice Exceptional learners to help them meet their true academic potential.
All students who complete the course will get a Certificate of Completion from the Montessori Foundation.
Additionally, if you are interested, Sarasota University offers Continuing Education Units for a fee of $20.
We will meet for a 90-minute live video workshop session each Tuesday for four consecutive weeks.
