Loveland teachers get lesson in ADHD
Posted Monday, June 13, 2016
Teachers from across the Loveland City School District had an opportunity to learn how to better serve students diagnosed with ADHD or symptoms of ADHD in a special session Tuesday, May 31. The professional development day started in the Loveland High School (LHS) Auditorium with keynote speaker Dr. Aaron Vaughn from the Children’s Hospital Center for ADHD.
“The presentation had the potential to be quite eye-opening for some of our teachers about what our students with ADHD manage in their daily lives,” said Dr. Amy Crouse, Loveland assistant superintendent of teaching & learning. “It’s a priority for us to better understand how to help all of our students grow both academically and socially – and this was a great opportunity to dive deeper into this subject matter.”
The keynote address was provided as part of Loveland's ongoing partnership with the Center for ADHD. After the keynote address, teachers divided into buildings to continue professional development training.
