Beyond the Classroom: Supporting Students with ADHD
Teachers play an essential role in the treatment of students with ADHD, both within and outside of the classroom. After spending almost 40 hours each week with their students, teachers develop a unique perspective of each student’s behaviors and can offer valuable insight to parents and health care providers. Learn how to support your students with ADHD outside of the curriculum and the classroom. Identify the “red flag” behaviors that are important to share with parents, which will in turn help to effectively adjust a student’s treatment plan. Discuss the importance of a positive attitude and other strategies that can help parents create a smooth and stress-free morning at home so the child comes to school ready to learn. Explore approaches for communicating with parents and caregivers so that you can be an effective part of your student’s treatment team and an ally to your student’s family. In this webinar you will learn how to: • Identify “red flag” behaviors of students with ADHD • List strategies parents and caregivers can use to help their child prepare for the school day • Discuss how to communicate the behaviors of students with ADHD effectively with parents, caregivers and other school personnel Sandra Mislow, M.Ed. has dedicated almost 25 years to supporting and advocating for children and adults with developmental disabilities through various teaching, managing, and advocating roles.

EAs may also work in specialist positions such as in literacy programs or youth at risk programs. To obtain work as an EA you will need to have the following: - A working with Children Check - Usually a police clearance is also required - A relevant qualification such as the Certificate III in Disability or Certificate III in Education Support - A suitable demeanour, attitude and presentation to work in a school environment - A love of working with children and other people in a team environment - A good quality resume and cover letter Education Assistants undertake many community service work tasks including but not limited to: - Working with parents and guardians on a daily basis - Assisting with case management (IEPs and IBPs) - Organising community events such as excursions and fates - Assisting vulnerable groups of people such as low-socio economic - Ensuring abuse and neglect is reported to supervisors - Obtaining funding such as grants from government departments or local businesses - Organising and assisting with events such as art displays - Working with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - Assisting with a range of disabilities and disorders - Researching and informing clients of support services and networks - Liaising with community groups - Liaising with specialist case workers such as psychologists and teachers - Managing behaviour and learning - Planning activities and creating resources Education assistants often work with children with disabilities including but not limited to: - Autism Spectrum Disorder - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - Dyslexia - Processing disorders - Developmental delay disorders - Foetal Alcohol Syndrome - Oppositional Defiance Disorder - Cerebral palsy - Mental health - Fragile X - Downs Syndrome It is generally easy to find casual and part time work as an education assistant by putting your name down at all schools in your local area. This often leads to more permanent employment. Many education assistants work part time. When looking for work, don’t forget special needs schools which are schools within the main school that even have their own Principal, teachers and administration staff. Over 90% of people who enrol in a course to become an education assistant are female and are often mothers who are looking for family friendly work hours. Depending on the course and level, education assistants learn the following: - Safety including duty of care laws - Education policy and regulations - Supporting students literacy and numeracy learning - Instructional techniques (how to help students learn) - Techniques for working with a diverse range of people - Behaviour management techniques - Developmental domains such as cognitive, language and social development - Basics of and techniques for working with specific disabilities and disorders - Creating activities and basic planning - Working with Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and Individual Behaviour Plans (IBPs) - Early Years Learning Framework implementation Working in the education sector is challenging, rewarding and is a never ending learning curve.

Creating a Healthy After School Routine for Your Child: How to Avoid Overscheduling
Dr. Kelly Ross, a pediatrician with Washington University at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, discusses developing healthy routines for kids with hectic school schedules. Kelly is a working mom with teenagers who are involved in several extracurricular activities, and she has spent a lot of time looking at the research to make sure her kids are not overscheduled. The task of creating balance in your child’s life may seem impossible with school and so many options of extracurricular activities. You want your kids to be involved in activities outside of school, but you also want to make sure that they are not overbooked and stressed because they have too much on their plate. As a parent, it is important to find a routine that works for your child as they take on more extracurricular activities in different stages of life. There are a couple things to consider when assessing the appropriate number of activities for your child: - What’s their temperament? Every child is a little different when it comes to the number of activities they can take on without being overwhelmed. Some kids thrive on having a highly scheduled life with something going on every hour. Other kids need to be encouraged to participate in activities and may be more easily overwhelmed by such a busy schedule. Gauge your child’s activities with their individual temperament in mind. - What is their age? Four year olds having an activity every day when they don’t have homework and don’t have a certain time they have to wake up every single day is fine. As kids hit middle school and high school, balancing activities becomes more of a challenge with added homework. Extracurricular activities are good, but remember to keep a balance in your child’s life. A general rule of thumb for middle school and high school is to pick two activities that your child really enjoys. Technology can be a great solution for allowing you to create a healthy schedule for your child, especially for working moms. You can set limitations on the technology your child is using or you can also use technology to know that your child is where they say they are. In addition, using the buddy system with other moms can help you establish a schedule for your child that works with your schedule as well. Maybe one month into the school year, do a check-in to see if your child’s schedule is working. A few questions you should ask yourself to assess whether the routine in place is working for your child are: Is my child getting enough sleep? Are they getting their homework done? Did they seem stressed? Do they seem bored? Are they spending too much time on electronics? Use all of the information that you gather to determine how your current scheduling is going. Checking in frequently will allow you to figure out how much scheduling your child needs and what works best.

What to Do When Child  Refuses to Go to School
Most kids try to get out of going to school once in a while, but with a little coaxing or a firm reminder that staying home isn’t an option, they’ll go on their way. There are some kids, however, who outright refuse to go to school. Dealing with a child who refuses to go to school can be extremely stressful. Letting your child stay home for the day - or a few days - will likely make the problem worse. But figuring out how to get your child to school when he’s refusing to go isn’t an easy task. If your child is refusing to go to school, take steps to address the situation right away. Problem-Solve with Your Child Whether your child has always disliked school, or his refusal to go seems to be out of the blue, try to learn more about what’s going on. Problems like a bully on the bus, or trouble understanding math can cause kids lots of distress, but these types of problems can be easily solved with a little adult help. Questions that start with “why,” such as, “Why don’t you want to go to school?” sound accusatory and aren’t likely to be helpful. Stick to questions like, “What would make it easier to go to school today?” and see if your child can brainstorm some suggestions. Stay calm and make it clear that you really want your child to enjoy school. Show that you’re willing to help as much as you can to create an enjoyable experience for him. Work together on solving the problem and see if you can develop a solution that helps your child feel more comfortable about school. Seek Professional Help If your child’s refusal to attend school isn’t an isolated incident, seek help from a mental health professional. An evaluation can assess possible underlying problems, like depression or anxiety, which are often at the root of school refusal. A professional can also assist you in setting appropriate limits and consequences for your child. A therapist may advise you to take away privileges when your child refuses to go to school, for example. If you aren’t sure where to get help, start by talking to your child’s pediatrician. A doctor can help determine what types of intervention may be best for your child. Communicate the Problem with Your Child’s School It’s important to keep an open line of communication with the school. Your child’s teacher may be able to offer insight into any issues that may be influencing your child’s school refusal. Letting school officials know of the problem can also ensure they’ll keep a better eye out for potential problems - like bullies on the playground. If your child has been tardy or absent due to his refusal to go to school, school administration needs to know what’s going on. Request a meeting and work together with the school on strategies that can reduce your child’s distress. Create a Plan with the School Work together with the school to create a plan that will reduce your child’s distress. Sometimes, a few modifications may need to be made. A shorter school day, or extra help with classes, are just a few examples. A little extra support from the staff at your child’s school can make a big difference. A pass to visit the guidance counselor at any time, or a special daily greeting from the school nurse, could also help your child feel less distressed. Talk About the Positive Aspects of School While it’s important to acknowledge the difficult parts about school, don’t focus on the negative. Rather than asking, “Did anyone pick on you today?” when he walks through the door, keep the focus on the positive aspects of school. Ask questions like, “What was the best part of your day today?” or “What did you do at recess?” When you assist your child in acknowledging at least one or two good things about school, it’ll help him silence the negative thoughts like, “I hate everything about school.” When he starts thinking more positively, he’ll feel better about school and may be more motivated to attend.

Social Skills App for Children & Teens with Social & Behaviour Issues including Aspergers & ADD/ADHD
http://www.socialnavigatorapp.com The Social Navigator is a revolutionary social skills app developed to assist children with social and behavioral challenges in adapting their behavior and developing life-long social skills. The Social Navigator allows the user to quickly enter the dynamics of their current social situation and instantly generates corresponding strategies and recommendations, so that the child can get their needs met in a socially acceptable manner. Designed to be both a behavior management device and a teaching tool, The Social Navigator can be used anytime a child is becoming agitated or when their behavior begins to conflict with others. It can also be used to prepare a child for an upcoming event or to review a past problematic situation. What Sets The Social Navigator Apart Traditional interventions concentrate on teaching social skills and self-management skills through stories, formal lessons or reinforcement models. When the child is interacting with others or is experiencing a conflict, they are expected to apply what they have learned. This assumes that the child is calm enough to have the capacity to reason, the discrimination skills to recognize what type of situation they are in and how others are reacting to them, and the planning skills to quickly formulate an appropriate response. All of these are cognitive skills that have been identified as particularly challenging for this type of child. The Social Navigator was developed to address these neurological differences and deficits, not ignore them. Social competence requires that the child engage in specific cognitive tasks. Unlike other social skills apps on the market, every component of The Social Navigator has been designed to support, practice and enhance these cognitive skills. http://www.socialnavigatorapp.com

It’s probably been a while. That’s too bad because the best research tells us that obedient children are happy children. And, from my experience as a family psychologist, the parents of obedient children are happy parents. Since all parents want their children to be happy, the question becomes: How does one get a child to obey? Is there some trick to it? Well, there are certainly are a lot of parents who think so. They believe that proper discipline is a matter of using the right methods, techniques, and strategies: what I call consequence delivery systems. Parents have been using these behavior-modification-based methods since they became popular in the 1960s – seemingly to no avail. Would anyone argue that today’s kids are more obedient than kids were several generations ago? I don’t think so. The reason these methods and techniques don’t work is that proper discipline is not a matter of proper methods. It’s a matter of a proper attitude on the part of the parent. Let me illustrate the point. Let’s say that for a week I observe the classroom of a grade school teacher who has the reputation of being the best disciplinarian in her district. She consistently has fewer behavior problems than any of her colleagues. What is she doing? She’s making her expectations perfectly clear. Which means, first, she communicates in simple, declarative sentences. She doesn’t use fifty words when she could use ten. The more words you use to communicate your expectations, the less confident you sound. Second, she prefaces her instructions to her students with authoritative phrases like “I want you to…” and “It’s time for you to…” She says, “It’s time for you to take out your math books and turn to page 25” as opposed to “Let’s take out our math books and turn to page 25. Okay?” Third, this teacher does not explain the motives behind her instructions to her students. Why? Because she knows that explanations invite arguments. Whenever parents tell me they’re dealing with an argumentative child I know that these well-intentioned people are explaining themselves. They tell their child why they want him to pick up his toys, for example. And he argues, because you can always pick apart an explanation. If you don’t explain yourself when you give an instruction to a child, then the child, being a child, is almost surely going to ask for one. He’s going to ask Why? or Why not? At which point… get ready for a big surprise… your answer should be “Because I said so.” For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/how-get-kids-listen

Gifted, creative and highly sensitive children | Heidi Hass Gable | TEDxLangleyED
Being “gifted” often feels far from a good thing, when you’re the one living it. And yet the myth persists that “gifted” is an elitist and privileged label in education. That “those kids” will be fine without any extra programs or supports. After all, what’s the worst that can happen – they get bored? In reality, many of our most vulnerable learners are those “gifted” kids who know they just don’t “fit it.” In our rush to identify and label children for purposes of funding and organizing our educational services most efficiently, we’re missing the ground level, actionable and everyday needs of an entire grouping of needy kids. Our most gifted, sensitive and creative students are our canaries in the coal mine; they are more sensitive to the world around them and the reactions we see in them can teach us what our education system needs to be, believe, include and stop. As is often the case, what is necessary for some is beneficial to all. Heidi approaches our education system from multiple perspectives. First and foremost, she is the mother of three amazing, gifted, creative and/or highly sensitive children! Heidi also spent almost six years as president of the City of Coquitlam‘s District Parent Advisory Council, attending countless advisory committees and working to build relationships between parents and teachers.

Early Recognition Of Child Development Problems / Educational Video
Recognizing Child Development Problems / Educational Video. Public domain video courtesy of CDC. It's time to change how we view a child's growth. Do you know all the ways you should measure your childs growth? We naturally think of height and weight, but from birth to 5 years, your child should reach milestones in how he plays, learns, speaks and acts. A delay in any of these areas could be a sign of a developmental problem, even autism. The good news is, the earlier its recognized the more you can do to help your child reach her full potential. Early recognition of developmental disabilities such as autism is key for parents and providers. CDC realized the impact on families and invested in a campaign to help parents measure their children's progress by monitoring how they play, learn, speak and act. What is child development? A child's growth is more than just physical. Children grow, develop, and learn throughout their lives, starting at birth. A child's development can be followed by how they play, learn, speak, and behave. What is a developmental delay? Will my child just grow out of it? Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye bye" are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in playing, learning, speaking, behaving, and moving (crawling, walking, etc.). A developmental delay is when your child does not reach these milestones at the same time as other children the same age. If your child is not developing properly, there are things you can do that may help. Most of the time, a developmental problem is not something your child will "grow out of" on his or her own. But with help, your child could reach his or her full potential! What is developmental screening? Doctors and nurses use developmental screening to tell if children are learning basic skills when they should, or if they might have problems. Your child's doctor may ask you questions or talk and play with your child during an exam to see how he or she learns, speaks, behaves, and moves. Since there is no lab or blood test to tell if your child may have a delay, the developmental screening will help tell if your child needs to see a specialist. Why is developmental screening important? When a developmental delay is not recognized early, children must wait to get the help they need. This can make it hard for them to learn when they start school. In the United States, 17 percent of children have a developmental or behavioral disability such as autism, intellectual disability (also known as mental retardation), or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In addition, many children have delays in language or other areas. In addition, many children have delays in language or other areas. But, less than half of children with problems are identified before starting school. During this time, the child could have received help for these problems and may even have entered school more ready to learn. Talk to your child's doctor or nurse if you have concerns about how your child is developing. If you or your doctor think there could be a problem, you can take your child to see a developmental pediatrician or other specialist, and you can contact your local early intervention agency (for children under 3) or public school (for children 3 and older) for help. To find out who to speak to in your area, you can contact the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities by logging on to http://www.nichcy.org/ or calling 1-800-695-0285. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has links to information for families at www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/resources/familyresources.htm. If there is a problem, it is very important to get your child help as soon as possible.

Finally, a groundbreaking book that reveals what your dyslexic child is experiencing—and what you can do so that he or she will thrive More than thirty million people in the United States are dyslexic—a brain-based genetic trait, often labeled as a "learning disability" or "learning difference," that makes interpreting text and reading difficult. Yet even though children with dyslexia may have trouble reading, they don't have any problems learning; dyslexia has nothing to do with a lack of intellect. While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics' innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond. After years of battling with a school system that did not understand his dyslexia and the shame that accompanied it, renowned activist and entrepreneur Ben Foss is not only open about his dyslexia, he is proud of it. In The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan he shares his personal triumphs and failures so that you can learn from his experiences, and provides a three-step approach for success: • Identify your child's profile: By mapping your child's strengths and weaknesses and assisting her to better understand who she is, you can help your child move away from shame and feelings of inadequacy and move toward creating a powerful program for learning. • Help your child help himself: Coach your child to become his own best advocate by developing resiliency, confidence, and self-awareness, and focusing on achievable goals in areas that matter most to him. • Create community: Dyslexic children are not broken, but too often the system designed to educate them is. Dare to change your school so that your child has the resources to thrive. Understanding your rights and finding allies will make you and your child feel connected and no longer alone. Packed with practical ideas and strategies dyslexic children need for excelling in school and in life, this empowering guide provides the framework for charting a future for your child that is bright with hope and unlimited potential.

Classroom aides for autistic students: Qualified?
People were outraged after seeing the story of a Bennington mother who has a recording of what she claims proves her 9 year old autistic son was routinely being locked in a room at school and was abused and harassed by the aides who'd been assigned to assist in his education. Andrew MacKenzie is the executive director of the Newmeadow pre-school in Malta which specializes in educating children with autism. Newmeadow abides by all the state requirements, including criminal background checks and such, but the process doesn't end there. ‚“There‚„s a very extensive initial orientation and ongoing training that we put people through,‚ he says. ‚“We are very, very specialized in dealing with autism here and as a result, everyone here buys into and is a proponent of the program that we offer here,‚ he adds. In Vermont and New York, a person can become a teacher's assistant with only a high school diploma or equivalent, with no special needs training or experience. In recent years, some schools have contacted Newmeadow, requesting training. ‚“One of the things we do with our children is we don‚„t give them an opportunity to fail.‚
