[ARCHIVED] ADD/ADHD Workshop

Hard to Pay Attention? Lebanon Special School District hosts ADD/ADHD Workshop

ADD/ADHD is a medical condition that makes it hard for a person to pay attention

and/or control his or her actions. Join Lynn Cable, Director of Special Education and

Tammy Grow, Coordinated School Health Coordinator in an interactive learning session

on this topic. You will leave with a clearer understanding of ADD/ADHD, the diagnosis,

the educational implications, medications, and information on managing this medical

diagnosis. We will also discuss dietary issues and home/school issues.

“Workshops hosted by our Special Ed Department are among our most well attended,”

said Family Resource Center Coordinator, Beth Petty. “It has been a couple of years

since we have hosted on this topic, and Lynn Cable is sure to bring new information to

the night’s agenda.” Those who attend will get a free parent guide entitled, Helping Your

Child Manage ADHD by Channing-Bete. Split into four sections, the parenting manuals

include information on Understanding ADHD, Tracking, Treating and Other Important

Considerations, including how to work with your child’s school. These guides are

compliments of the Middle Tennessee Electric Sharing Change Program. Free childcare

and snacks will also be provided.

The workshop will be hosted on Monday, March 6 from 6:00-8:30 in the Castle Heights

Elementary Library located at 1007 Castle Heights Ave. N in Lebanon. LSSD Staff should

arrive at 5:30 to receive a half-day of Professional Development. They will be treated to

a thirty minute pre-meeting VIP Session with helpful classroom tips. Parents and

community members should arrive at 6:00. For more information and to RSVP, please

contact Beth Petty at 615-453-2693 or beth.petty@lssd.org
