Les Redick- For over 30 years I have taught ADHD and LD students from grades 4 through 12. In addition to my professional experience, I have personal experience as both my son and I have ADHD. This combination of professional and personal experience has given me an excellent perspective on ADHD, executive functioning issues and motivation. I have been speaking professionally on the topic of ADHD for over 15 years. I recently finished my M.Ed. in Educational Research with a focus on ADHD through the University of Calgary and I currently work at North Point School teaching High School Bio/Chem and CALM 20.
This webinar will be recorded and available for registered participants to view for 30 days post event.
