5 Reasons Why Parents of Children with ADHD Need to Become Proactive, Well-Informed Advocates

5 Reasons Why Parents of Children with ADHD Need to Become Proactive, Well-Informed Advocates | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Most children with ADHD receive their care from community-based pediatricians, so it is especially important for that care to be consistent with best-practice guidelines. Unfortunately, all too often it is not.

Strategies for Strengthening the Brain’s Executive Functions

Strategies for Strengthening the Brain’s Executive Functions | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
An appropriate metaphor that often helps students and educators alike understand the role of executive functioning in thinking and behavior is to imagine an orchestra conductor. The conductor chooses what work the orchestra will perform, decides how to interpret that work, sets the tempo for the performance, and directs each section of musicians to contribute at the appropriate time. In the same way, executive functioning allows us to:

Activate awareness
Self-regulate by cueing, directing, and coordinating the various cognitive skills necessary for moment-to-moment functioning
Establish goals and make long-term plans
Maintain a self-image of being in charge of our learning and actions.
Students can and should be taught to develop their executive functioning as a path to self-directed learning and self-determined living.

Beth Dichter's insight:

Do your learners know what happens when the read, or when stories are read to them. This post, from the Open Education Database, provides a visual (that you may want to print out and share with learners and their families) as well as 10 ways that reading helps your brain workout. The list is below. 

* We make photos in our mind, even without being prompted.

* Spoken word can put your brain to work.

* Reading about experiences is almost the same as living it.

* Different styles of reading create different patterns in the brain.

* New languages can grow your brain.

* Your brain adapts to reading e-books in seven days.

* E-books lack in spatial navigability.

* Story structure encourages our brain to think in sequence, expanding our attention spans.

* Reading changes your brain structure (in a good way)).

* Deep reading makes us more empathetic.
