Attention Challenges Simulation Helps Parents and Professionals Provide More Effective Treatment for Children with ADHD
On Oct 27, 2012, Stowell Learning Center in Chino, CA will offer a free 1½ hour simulation that helps parents, teachers, and professionals feel what it is like to have attention challenges (ADD/ADHD).
Chino, CA (I-Newswire) September 24, 2012 - Stowell Learning Center will offer a free 1½ hour simulation experience that helps parents, teachers, and other professionals feel what it is like to actually have attention challenges (ADD/ADHD).
More and more parents and professionals are getting training in dealing with students who have ADD/ADHD. But what is it like to actually HAVE the condition...to live each and every day fighting to focus your attention on what is happening in the school day? That’s the critical piece that training generally lacks.
After attending an Attention Challenges Simulation, Luci DeRose of the Anaheim City School District said, “I don’t have a learning problem, but now I can imagine how hard it must be for a student who struggles. I was so irritated at times.”
The Attention Challenges Simulation helps parents better understand their children. Kris Paveloff of Yorba Linda, CA said, “I used to pick him up from school and he would tell me that he’s overwhelmed. Seeing this and knowing that he is so frustrated and it’s on a daily basis, it takes a lot of patience. It really opened his dad’s eyes and mine.”
This is a fun, but eye-opening experience that can help anyone working with children with attention problems to better understand and help remove or at least diminish the frustration these children feel.
Developed by Drs. Joe and Carol Utay from Pittsburg, the simulation will place participants in a classroom setting and it will have them focus through a series of distractions. Throughout the simulation, participants can ask questions and discuss their experience.
The simulation will be held on from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Stowell Learning Center, 15192 Central Ave., Chino, CA 91710.
The purpose of the simulation is for participants to experience, first-hand, the daily challenges facing children with AD/HD.
While the event is held as a free service to parents and professionals, they request that you make a reservation so that materials can be ready for all who attend.
Jill Stowell, owner of Stowell Learning Centers says, "Students with attention challenges are often seen as lazy or unmotivated. Once we can ‘walk in their shoes’ we can recognize how much effort and energy they’re actually having to use and how frustrating it is for them. It helps us as parents or professionals to work with them in a much kinder and more effective way.”
