ADHD Resources

ADHD in the Classroom (Preview or Purchase Video)

ADHD students are entrepreneurial, inventors like Thomas Edison, visionaries, creators, scientists like Albert Einstein, professional athletes like Terry Bradshaw, CEO’s, entertainers, and more because they are full of passion. If we can help them through school and let them loose in their area of passion they will far exceed their peers.

How ADHD Students Learn

Stanford did a study that showed the learning style ofthe average person as follows: 89% Visual, 10% Auditory & 1% the remaining 3 senses. As we reflect on the teaching style in our schools we realize that the average student will struggle because the primary learning style is Auditory and then we expect an ADHD child that is primarily Visual and Tactile in their learning style to assimilate and learn.

Seminar Objective

To provide tools to empathize, provide structure, organization and positive reinforcement to set the stage for a bright and amazing future.

  • Define ADHD and symptoms
  • Behavioral approaches and accommodations for ADHD in the school
  • Treatment and Alternatives to Medication utilizing diet and supplements – 85% of Jim Wests clients do not need medication

StressLess with Alternatives to Medication for Mental Health – Food for Thought

What we eat effects how we think, energy levels, focus, mood regulation and more. Food for Thought pulls from many medical studies on how dietary changes and vitamins can improve ADHD, Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD), Bipolar Disorder, Depression & Anxiety symptoms.

Reporting Abuse: When should I call? What symptoms or behaviors should I look for?

Teachers, social workers, and health care workers are all mandated reporters of child abuse. Make a call, remain anonymous, and the abuse and neglect stops. If only it were that simple. Most mandated reporters are familiar with the signs and risks of physical and sexual abuse. But, do you realize that over 60% of substantiated cases of child abuse are neglect? This includes educational, emotional, physical, and medical neglect. What’s more worrisome is that emotional abuse can be the most destructive, often has the deepest mental health damage, is the most prevalent, but yet, it is the most difficult to prove.

  1. Before you leave this seminar, you will understand:
  2. How to recognize the subtle signs and forms of child abuse and neglect.
  3. Abuse and neglect reaches across all family types: wealthy, poor, white, black
  4. The best way to approach the parents and/or family in a non-threatening manner.
  5. When a report is necessary, how to involve the family in their own healing.

Drug Proof Your Kids in the Schools & Communities

Drug and alcohol abuse is a community issue. It affects the lives of families from any faith, culture or economic status. Regardless of urban or rural living, children are not immune to the influences of a drug culture. But there is hope. It’s never too early for prevention or too late for intervention. Consider attending a Parent Program or hosting a Parent Program in your School or Church to help stop drug abuse. Make parents aware that they are the strongest force against drugs in the lives of their children. Read More

But He Comes From Such a Good Family

Just as a picture says a thousand words, so does a child’s actions. Though the divorce rate is declining, families are becoming more and more detached from each other. In today’s society, it has become almost a necessity for both parents to work full-time outside the family. As a result, children are growing up seeing their adult caregivers for less than 2 hours per day, with only 30 minutes or less of that being “quality time”. Families have forgotten how to play together, learn together, and this responsibility has been handed over to teachers and church staff. This seminar will train a parent, teacher, or caregiver how to:

  1. Recognize when difficult children are not just being difficult.
  2. Bring the parents and children/teens together as a team in working on rebellious behavior.
  3. Read just priorities within the family unit.
  4. Build lasting memories to share for a lifetime
  5. Handle a rebellious child in the classroom when the parents remain passive.
