Motivating neurodiverse learners during hybrid learning: How to help kids do the no-fun, boring and tough stuff

We have another very special guest speaker joining us in June – Dr Sharon Saline!

Does your child or teen with ADHD, high functioning autism, learning differences or anxiety have a tough time starting and completing things? Learn how to successfully motivate them using Dr. Saline’s evidence-based, collaborative approach. Instead of arguments and frustration, learn to increase buy-in, motivation and accountability by applying the research-based, effective strategies that have helped hundreds of families overcome procrastination and get stuff done!

Sharon Saline, Psy.D., clinical psychologist and author of the award-winning book, ‘What Your ADHD Child Wishes You Knew: Working Together to Empower Kids for Success in School and Life ‘and ‘The ADHD Solution Card Deck’ specializes in working with kids, young adults and families living with ADHD, learning disabilities and mental health issues.

Her unique perspective – as a sibling in an ADHD home, combined with decades of experience as a clinical psychologist and educator/clinician consultant – assists her in guiding families and adults towards effective communication and closer connections.

She lectures and facilitates workshops internationally on topics such as understanding ADHD, executive functioning, anxiety, different kinds of learners and the teen brain. Dr. Saline is a regular contributor to ADDitudemag.com and PsychologyToday.com, a featured expert on MASS Appeal on WWLP-TV and a part-time lecturer at the Smith School for Social Work.

This talk will be highly relevant to parents, family members, teachers and other professionals working with neurodiverse children/young adults.

I invite you to join me in speaking with Dr Saline.
