It can be a challenge to work with students with ADHD or other special needs, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. In this workshop, special needs advocate Danielle Wiltchik emphasizes tutoring to address the behavior, not the diagnosis, and she offers helpful tips and techniques to make sessions more productive for both tutor and student. Topics include dealing with homework difficulties, improving attention and lowering stress through mindfulness, and understanding the myths and misconceptions of ADHD.
