“Understanding social skills therapy, PEERS and Paediatric Speech Pathology in the treatment of ADHD”
RECENT EVENT: All 3 sessions were booked out! 09, 11 and 17 February 2021
Our first webinar topic this year was delivered by Simon da Roza. He’s a passionate educator with an interest in supporting kids and families with ADHD, ODD, ASD and PDA.
This webinar focused on practical strategies to set up parents and children for the year at school including your child’s “All About Me” portfolio; with recommendations on how best to engage and communicate with the school teacher and principal; educating them on ADHD and how it presents. You can advocate for adjustments in the classroom and Simon will delve into your rights and responsibilities, including IEPs, etc. This webinar focused on children across a range of year levels. Simon encourages proactive, reasonable adjustments to better match children’s executive functioning delays that present in the classroom, providing information for teachers on how to achieve this with little effort.
Simon Da Roza from Exceptional Learners provides dynamic learning support and bespoke tutoring for special needs children, children with learning difficulties and behavioural challenges. Simon was a teacher for 32years across NSW and Southern Queensland which allows him great insight into understanding the importance of collaboration between parents and schools to benefit kids.
