Communication Comfort Cards

Communication Comfort Cards

This is a set of three colour-based communication cards that are a wonderful aid for the able and disabled alike. However, they can be particularly useful with those that have an autistic spectrum disorder. They are an easy and effective way for people to let staff members, classmates, friends or almost anyone know how they feel about communicating at that point in time. Each card is 3 x 4 and fit easily inside a name badge holder. Alternatively, you can laminate them and use a hole punch before threading them onto a lanyard. This set includes both a UK and US friendly versions; along with a set for those that are familiar with this system and also one for those that are new to it. I hope this simple aid can help your students, family or friends to communicate more effectively! If you have any feedback please get in touch.

Professional Development Training: Memory Techniques for ADHD Students

Professional Development Training: Memory Techniques for ADHD Students

Working memory is part of our executive function and if often referred to as our “mental workspace” where information is stored and used for a short time i.e. a few seconds. It’s that place where we store a phone number, an address, an email address, etc. If a student is not able to retain the information needed to solve the problem, then the student is unable to complete the task and, of course, does not feel good about it at all. What is language processing? Several parts of language are very difficult for children with ADHD to make sense of and use successfully on a daily basis. Syntax is the set of rules of oral and written grammar. Semantics are the word meanings that influence oral and written grammar. Finally, pragmatics is the social use of language to convey thoughts and humor. The following thirty-three presentation and training slides are an explanation of many different memory techniques and strategies that can be modeled and used successfully with students with characteristics of ADHD to help improve his/her/their working memory deficits. This training can be used in a focused faculty meeting, an all-day professional development session, and/or a small group professional learning community. As well, this training can be given to parents to allow them to help their children at home more successfully when studying with them or helping with homework!
