I have been in the field of education for 27 years. I love what I do everyday; it is truly a passion and I can not imagine doing anything else! In 2013, I retired as the gifted, special services, and elementary curriculum director for a public school district! I design curricular materials anywhere from Pre-K to 8th grade, and I must say I am partial to classroom/behavior management and English Language Arts.

Professional Development Training: Memory Techniques for ADHD Students

(0)
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.
