Mining Magnificent Minds: ADHD for Teachers
Mining Magnificent Minds: ADHD for Teachers (MMM) is a series of 10 short, online videos created by Dr. Edward Hallowell. As the title implies, MMM was developed to help teachers:
- understand attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD);
- sharpen their skills for working with students with ADHD;
- learn how to develop their students talents, skills and interests; and,
- provide them with the tools to “unwrap the gifts” that lie inherent of every child.
Dr. Hallowell has worked with children and adults who have ADHD since he was diagnosed with ADHD himself back in 1981. Learning about ADHD and educating the general public has been one of his life’s major missions. Teachers have always been one of his favorite audiences because teachers saved him from what could have been a disastrous outcome when he was growing up. So he knows firsthand the enormous power that teachers wield to change lives dramatically for the better.
He also knows that teachers devote countless hours ensuring that lesson instructions are designed to meet the needs of each child. However, the needs of students with ADHD often do not fit neatly into recognized learning styles. Yet, many teachers have not been professionally trained to recognize or address these specific needs.
Mining Magnificent Minds will correct that by providing teachers with all they really need to know to bring out the best in every student who has ADHD.
