Hilary has asked that you bring along a piece of your child/young persons homework with you to work through. Please do bring along a snack and some water as there will be a short break part way through.
Nicky Parr who is hosting the workshop for me is a parent of two children diagnosed with ADHD and is a teacher who has supported children with ADHD, so you are in excellent hands !
A little bit of background: Hilary is the Founder of Can Do and the Principal Trainer.
“I started teaching secretarial studies at a general FE college in the late 1980’s, but moved into corporate training for a few years. My return to FE in the 1990s saw me teaching students at Entry Level and above. This was a challenge but one which I enjoyed, with a determination to help students overcome their learning disabilities to help them to achieve. There was zero training in this area and I learned it all the hard way.”
Hilary was later appointed as a teaching and learning coach and this status within the college gave her a voice to fulfil her ambition to spread the word in-house.
Having co-ordinated a team of LSAs and being dedicated to find ways to manage classroom behaviour issues, Hilary was recruited to set up and manage a Behavioural Support team. This model led to her being approached to disseminate this good practice as the behaviour lead to other colleges via a government-funded project. From this platform Can Do Behaviour was born (2010).
After seeing the struggles of students with ADHD, Hilary made ‘reasonable adjustment’ to her own practice. She subsequently wrote a short book called “Meeting the Needs of Learners with ADHD in the Mainstream Classroom” which easily translated into a training programme. This is now an accredited programme of study at Level 2 and Level 3, on the QCF and accredited by OCN London.
Hilary’s belief is that for many of the disengaged students that she’s worked with there is usually a different way to reach them. In her behaviour management training sessions you’ll see how.
