at Post Road Library, Cumming
Join us as we receive a special visit from Dr. Bonnie Cohen-Greenberg from BCG Learning Center.
Has your child either been diagnosed with ADHD or displayed ADHD-like symptoms? If so, it is not surprising because something that’s going to affect the brain and cause one developmental outcome may also cause a second developmental outcome. We see this all the time with students who have learning disabilities, and now we have learned something that most parents of children with autism already know – about 30% of young children with autism also show signs of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This is a rate that’s three times higher than it is in the general population. When a child or adolescent has ADHD-like symptoms, it is essential to have collaborative, goal-oriented support where parents, children, educators and any other professionals who are involved work together to identify the goals and then develop the necessary strategies to reach these goals. It is important for students and families to learn about the nature of the disorder and its management. Often strategies that work for your children without ADHD don’t work for people with ADHD. In this presentation we can offer a brief overview of ways of helping your child with the practical activities of daily life in an organized, goal-oriented, and timely fashion. Dr. Cohen-Greenberg has taught students with learning disabilities in a variety of public and private settings. She worked as an educational evaluator for the City of New York in 1979, where she assessed students to determine whether or not they had a learning disability. She is a member of the Association of Educational Therapists. Bonnie has been in this field, in many different capacities, for over 32 years. She is now joined by writing coaches, early intervention specialists, and tutors who specialize in all of the secondary level content areas at BCG Learning Center. http://www.bcglearning.com/ Everyone on staff has an extensive background in working with ADD, LD, gifted, and alternative learners.
We hope to see you there!!!! 🙂
