Learning Disabilities/ADHD Awareness Month

October is Learning Disabilities/ADHD Awareness Month. The Goal of Learning Disabilities Awareness Month is highlighting the strengths that each student has, creating a great amount of potential. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 We encourage all parents to nurture their child’s unique skills and talents. Although the symptoms associated with the following disorders are often connected to the child’s education, especially in terms of math➗, writing 📝, reading📖, and one’s ability to focus, children impacted by learning disabilities and ADHD also possess unique strengths and in turn, immense potential. 📈
It is important to celebrate the accomplishments of these children while increasing awareness. The symptoms of ADHD by age group are as follows:

1) Preschool through 2nd grade-Has trouble getting started and needs to stop and listen. 👂🏻

2) Grades 3 through 7-Rushes through homework assignments and produces sub-par work.📄

3) Teens-Has a hard time remembering assignments and often forgets to write them down.✍️
