  • An overview of differential diagnosis from and comorbidity with ADHD (ODD, Learning Disorders, Anxiety)

Plus, you'll get evidence-based strategies and proven management techniques for any age student and their families — even those who have been labelled "difficult" in the past.

How will becoming an ADHD-Certified Educator advance my career?

Ask yourself — would you rather be remembered as just another teacher who couldn't connect with or lost control of students who learned "outside the box"...

...OR as the person who changed the way these students see and interact with the world — setting them up for success in and out of the classroom and allowing them to thrive in every area of their life?

You can't miss your opportunity to change lives as an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider (ADHD-CCSP)!

Frequently Asked Questions

According to clinical expert Dr. Russell Barkley, students with ADHD often struggle with self-motivating, planning, and problem-solving because they have an issue with executive functioning.

The good news is a problem with executive functioning does not mean the child has a knowledge or skill problem; they aren't dumb. They know what to do, they just don't know how to do it.

This extensive PESI training will provide you with hundreds of tangible tools and teaching techniques for students with ADHD — including both holistic and medication-based interventions. Walk away with simple, healthy, and safe ways to help kids of any age stay on task, express emotions, and calm their bodies, so they will be better able to concentrate on their work during the school day and succeed when self-regulating anywhere in the future.

If you are looking for clear cut ways to design subtle changes in the classroom to improve time management, working memory, motivation and emotional regulation that will benefit all children, not only those with ADHD... THIS IS THE RIGHT COURSE FOR YOU!
