From the Acton-Boxborough SpEdPAC

December 27, 2014

At 7:30pm on Wednesday, January 7, 2015, in the R.J. Grey Junior High School auditorium at 16 Charter Road in Acton, the Acton-Boxborough SpEd PAC will host a talk on ADHD by School Psychologist Kalyani Krishnan, M.A., assistant director of assessment and a language and learning specialist at the Institute for Learning and Development.

Her presentation will summarize what we know about ADHD in children, including the positive attributes of the ADHD profile. The talk will also address how ADHD is diagnosed, the importance of differential diagnosis, and possible treatment options (Note: the speaker is not an M.D.).

The relationship of ADHD to other learning difficulties, including specific learning disabilities and difficulties with executive function, will be addressed as well as gender differences in ADHD. The talk will include strategies for parenting.
