ADHD Intervention program
Transcript of ADHD Intervention program
ttention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
is defined as, "a brain disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development.
One manner in which depression among students with ADHD can be spotted and/or helped, is through counseling and therapy.
Talking through their feelings and hearing another person's advice has been proved to immensely help symptoms of depression amongst individuals.
This program would be an entirely new approach to therapy for students with ADHD experiencing depressing, as the students wold not be alone in a one-on-one session with a therapist.
Instead, they would be in a fun set with other peers who are experiencing the same thing, and can share their feelings and experiences with them.
Kids with ADHD are more likely to experience depression than their non-ADHD counterparts.
of all children with ADHD experience depression.
Some kids with ADHD are actually
for depression- which often leads to suicidal tendencies due to differences in brain chemistry that can cause attention issues and make some kids more likely to feel helpless or worthless.
ADHD After school "Late Bird" Program
By: Philippine Laguerre
What is ADHD?
erson wanders off task, lacks persistence, has difficulty sustaining focus, and is disorganized; and these problems are
to defiance or lack of comprehension.
person seems to move about constantly, including in situations in which it is not appropriate; or excessively fidgets, taps, or talks.
means a person makes hasty actions that occur in the moment without first thinking about them and that may have high potential for harm; An impulsive person may be socially intrusive and excessively interrupt others or make important decisions without considering the long-term consequences.
Weekly after school program held Fridays for 1-2 hours.
Any and all children will be welcomed to join the program, which will be held on the blacktop.
By having the meetings outside, the children feel "free" and are in a safe and open space.
Numerous benefits from outdoor environment (decreased stress. overall better behavior, enhanced/ open communication, etc).
Program will be held once a week on designated day (Friday) throughout the entire school year.
This program, which will be known as the "Late Bird Program", will be a spot where children can share their frustrations or overall feelings that they've encountered throughout the week.
Here, they would be able to talk with their peers, and share experiences and stories.
Get advice from adults as well as their peers on how to handle their feelings.
Adults participating in program will have received intervention training, and be able to provide tips and tricks for children to be able to do when they feel sad or frustrated.
By meeting every week, the adults in charge will be able to measure cognitive success by comparing how the children evolve in how they confront and address their issues.
If the program/intervention is successful, the students should experience less symptoms of depression as the year goes on, as well as be able to calm themselves and use the tips and tricks they learned in the program to deal with their feelings before they escalate.
This would uniquely make this program successful because the students can literally see that they are not alone feeling the way they feel, and make allies and friends that also have ADHD to lean on throughout the school day/week to talk to outside the program.
