Dyslexia and ADHD are generally regarded as two separate diagnoses. But, research and experience clearly supports the following findings:

MANY students with ADHD have dyslexia.
MOST students with dyslexia have ADHD.

Professionals must take a TRANSdisciplinary approach to the education and treatment of these children. This session will explore the challenges that these students face in the classroom, at home and in the community.

Among the topics covered will be:

  • Current research on the link between ADHD and dyslexia
  • Social impact of school failure
  • Impact of ADHD on the family’s dynamics; including the effect on the marriage.
  • Motivational issues for the child with ADHD
  • Specific strategies for teachers and parents designed to improve behavior, increase compliance and enhance self-esteem.
