What exactly is ADHD? In this session we will grow our understanding of ADHD and other challenges students may face. We will explore strategies to help all students succeed in religious school with a specific focus on understanding & supporting student behavior.

This one-hour Zoom workshop is part of Gateways’ series of “Introduction to Neurodiversity” drop-in sessions for religious school educators. Participants can expect to gain an understanding of each topic, explore how the relevant diagnosis will present in a religious school setting, and leave with three concrete strategies to bring back to their classrooms.

Workshop cost is $18 per person for schools within the CJP catchment area, and $36 per person for schools beyond the Boston area.
