Parent & Student Workshops
One Hour Could Change Everything
In an effort to bring the benefits of LEAD to more students in the Pikes Peak Region, the LEAD Foundation designed a series of workshops for high school students with learning disabilities and/or ADHD and their parents.
LEADing the Way is organized into 10, one-hour workshop classes, that take place during weekday evenings.
At this time we are able to offer this workshop for little to no cost thanks to generous underwriters. Join us for our fall LEADing the Way Workshop by clicking here.
What YOU can expect from this 10 week course
Symptoms and strategies to compensate are addressed and students are presented with legal rights and school plans to address accommodations.
The goal of weeks 2-3 is to increase self-knowledge so that students hone their self advocacy and self awareness skills.
Learn strategies for managing attention, best practices, and common types of medication.
The second half of the session considers the effects of marijuana, amphetamines, various designer drugs, tobacco, and alcohol on developing brains. Through addressing science-based research students build an understanding of the risks of short and long term usage.
Attendees evaluate their own executive functions and identify strengths, weaknesses and improvement strategies.
Get trained on strategies for more efficient memory results and evaluate your own memory!
Research about the developing teenage brain, in all its glory, is revealed.
I realized I could accomplish the same things as the “smart kids”. I would just take a different route to get there.
