Speaker: Dr Caroline Stevenson – Detentions, Suspensions and Expulsions – How to Manage ADHD in the School Environment
May 14 @ 6:45 pm-8:45 pm
Dr Caroline Stevenson, ADHD Psychologist
Detentions, Suspensions and Expulsions – How to Manage ADHD in the School Environment
To enable children with AD/HD to perform to their potential their problems with attention, listening skills, organisation and impulsivity need to be addressed. Further, many children with AD/HD need movement to help them function.
Using punitive measures such as detentions and suspensions will not change the behaviour of children with significant weaknesses in their ability to complete tasks. To enhance the functioning of children with AD/HD – schools MUST address the issues that lead children to have difficulties in the classroom. This can be achieved by the use of classroom accommodations and adaptation of tasks so that children can experience success.
Caroline Stevenson is a Senior Clinical Psychologist. She has a private practice in Frenchs Forest two days per week. She is the Clinical Psychology Manager at Royal Far West.
Caroline has a long standing interest in AD/HD across the lifespan. She has been on the Board of AD/HD Australia and a past President of ADDults.
