The third Shaping Habits for Improvement on Fridays for Teens (SHIFT) programs was presented by Mr. Jermaine Daz, occupational therapist at TIPS on Friday, February 21. Mr. Daz’s topic was managing ADHD in teens and his focus was the perspective of the student – or adult – with ADHD. Those attending, of course, had one or more young people in mind as we examined causes of and behavior associated with ADHD. A big thank you to Mr. Daz for helping us understand this condition and become more effective teachers and parents.
Our next SHIFT program will be Friday, May 15 when Dr. Ron Shumsky presents information about increasing motivation with teenagers. Please mark your calendars 6 – 7 p.m, with a discussion afterwards.
