Overview

This webinar will present an examination of the symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of attention deficit disorder in children from early childhood to adolescence, with a focus on children in the learning and social environments. The discussion will include a look at the developmental variations as the child with ADD grows, the specialized communication involved in dealing with students and parents, and practical strategies and interventions for use in the Montessori classroom.
