Developing A Calm Classroom

Did you know that one student in six struggles with their temperament, brain biology, or environment? Some have issues in all three areas. How does that affect your having a calm classroom? The national average is 20 students per class. You, as teachers, can expect to have three students in your class. It can feel as if you have double that number. These students don’t respond as expected to traditional classroom management. Their behaviors are due to factors in their nature and the nurture they receive throughout their community, not due to intentional actions. They will likely get worse as the consequences get harsher. They will believe they are unfairly treated and may become vindictive and spiteful. These students need more interaction and help from you. Still, it can be unclear whether they are showing deficits due to one or more of these factors or intentionally misbehaving for a self-serving purpose. The bottom line is that most students disrupting your calm classroom need help with these three factors. This course, Developing a Calm Classroom, will provide a deep dive into understanding the many facets of these three factors. Through video lessons, checklists, questionnaires, and other tools, you will better understand the whys of each student’s behavior. You will understand better what they may need to be more engaged and, thus, less disruptive. You will also learn more about your own three factors and how they may be helping you or adding to your daily stresses (and not just in the classroom.) Sign up now! If you don’t find the course informative and helpful, you have ten days to request a refund. However, I am confident you will find this knowledge helpful, as it will allow you to connect better with these students and create a calmer classroom.

Never Assume: Getting   To Know  Children Before Labeling Them (book)

 Dr. McGuire reminds us that children are born with a profile of temperament traits that rule how they behave or respond to what is occurring in their environment.

We, as adults, do not always remember our own childhood differences and how they made us feel.

Now living in a different time with more resources, education and science helping us through observations, stories of children can be a means of letting adults see children from a more objective eye, rather than the subjective eye colored by worry, fear or frustration.

Focusing on the demeanor of children and how to understand them, Dr. McGuire will use her experience as a behavioral pediatrician to help you, help your children and patients. Teaching you how to create a biographic profile of children she will demonstrate behavioral challenges while teaching you what to do with this new gained knowledge.

Dr. McGuire's book is filled with heartfelt essays and hopeful answers that you can apply to the children you know who need to be better understood.

The ADHD Student and Homework Problems

Healthcare providers diagnose ADHD in 8 – 10% of students. Many think the diagnosis is the end of the journey, solving the reason for the learning and behavioral issues.

In reality, 51% will also have identified or unidentified learning disorders. These additional disorders further interfere with the student's attempts to learn and apply knowledge from the classroom.

Check out my new book that reveals the conditions which complicate ADHD, making doing school work difficult.
