Unlearning biases about ADHD in early childhood education 

December 8th, 2022


Eastern Time

2:00PM - 3:00PM


Join us on Thursday, December 8th, at 2 PM ET as we welcome Monica Maddison, director of specialized education and founder of Bloom Behaviour! Monica is joining us to discuss a foundational understanding of ADHD executive functioning and its impact on early childhood classrooms. We will explore the stigma behind ADHD diagnosis, how it fits under the "neurodiversity umbrella" as well as how children with ADHD may interact differently with their environment. We will dive into self-regulation, impulsivity and the implications ADHD has for learning. This is not a webinar to miss!
