The Ignite Your Kid’s Genius Mini Masterclass Series

Back in May, I was invited by Jean Harville, M.Ed. to share top tech tips to help uniquely-wired kids succeed. 

Here is free access to the recorded discussion. We talked about topics such as the following:

  • How assistive technology is different from tech programs that teach academic skills
  • Why assistive technology is important to use
  • What type of assistive technology tools I recommend to families to help their kids who may struggle with auditory processing, such as those who are on the Autism Spectrum
  • How suggestions for tech features may differ for children or adults with ADHD
  • Suggestions for parents who are wondering how to create a non-distracting environment for their kids and themselves when using their computer to learn
  • How to respond to teachers or parents who wonder if assistive technology is an inappropriate crutch
  • The benefits of allowing our kids to interact with and use technology

Assistive Technology for ADHD and Executive Functioning Disorders

Watch the recording on Facebook Live!

Join Joan Green of Innovative Speech Therapy and The Chesapeake Center’s Dr. Kathleen Nadeau as they discuss how ADHD impacts more than just our attention and focus. At its core, ADHD is a deficiency in Executive Function skills. Those with ADHD lack the ability to organize thoughts and activities, prioritize tasks, manage time efficiently, and make decisions.

Lacking the normal structure of school and work, both children and adults have struggled to analyze, plan, organize and complete tasks at all– or on a deadline. They misplace materials, prioritize the wrong things, get overwhelmed by big projects… the list goes on.

BUT- technology can make our lives easier! 

You don’t know what you don’t know, and our goals it to inform listeners of certain apps and other technologies to help with impulsivity, transitions/ reminders, planning and scheduling and more.
