Just a reminder: there is no school tomorrow October 10th for a teacher in-service, as well as next Monday, October 13 in recognition of Columbus Day. As the weather gets colder, please have your children properly dressed for school. It’s a little chilly in the morning when kids get here, and I have noticed some kids in short sleeves and without a jacket. Next Thursday, October 16, our Pre-K students are headed on a field trip to Tom’s Farm. Have fun my little Preschoolers! Friday, October 17 is our PTO’s annual Dads and Donuts event. Dad and or special guest is welcome to come to our school with his child for a donut and some juice. It is always a popular event, and I can’t wait to see everyone. Finally, over the next couple of weeks, all of our students will be participating in our annual Hampshire Fire Department field trip. Classes will either go to the Hampshire Fire Department, or the Fire Department will be coming to Wright Elementary to teach all of our students about fire safety. A big THANK YOU goes out to our Hampshire Fire Department – THANK YOU! As always if anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

It is normal for children to have trouble focusing and behaving at one time or another. However, children with AD/HD and Executive Function difficulties do not just grow out of these behaviors. The symptoms continue and can cause difficulty at school, at home, or with friends. These children might daydream a lot, forget or lose things, squirm, fidget or talk too much, make careless mistakes or take risks, have trouble taking turns and have difficulty getting along with others. Eric will not only be discussing the science behind AD/HD and executive functioning in easy to understand language as well as current diagnosis and treatment options. More importantly though, he has a wealth of knowledge to share about real strategies that actually work to help your child succeed in school and in life. Eric is a well-known child and adult AD/HD counselor and coach in private practice in Volo, IL. Eric is an engaging speaker and professional member of CHADD and ADDA (Attention Deficit Disorder Association). He has been featured in the publication ADDITUDE and Chicago Parent Magazine. Eric will be presenting at the CHADD International Conference this November. Join us for what is sure to be an informative evening. Bring a friend as well as any questions you might have. There will be ample time for a Q&A session after the presentation.

Es normal que en algún momento los niños tengan problemas concentrándose y comportándose. Sin embargo, niños con “ADHD” y Déficits del Funcionamiento Ejecutivo (la habilidad de tomar decisiones, planificar y controlar el comportamiento) no se liberan de estos comportamientos. Los síntomas continúan y pueden causar dificultades en la escuela, en la casa, o con los amigos. Estos niños pueden distraerse mucho, olvidarse o perder cosas, retorcerse, inquietarse o hablar demasiado, cometer errores por descuido o por arriesgarse, tienen dificultades tomando turnos y llevándose bien con los demás. Eric no sólo estará hablando de la ciencia detrás del “AD/HD y funcionamientos ejecutivos de manera simple de entender, también hablará de diagnósticos actuales y opciones para tratamiento. Más importante, tiene un caudal de conocimientos para compartir sobre verdaderas estrategias que realmente funcionan para ayudar a que su hijo tenga éxito en la escuela y en la vida. Eric es un consejero y entrenador de niños y adultos con AD/HD muy conocido que ejerce en una práctica privada en Volo, IL. Eric es un presentador muy interesante y miembro profesional de “CHADD” y “ADDA” (por sus iniciales en inglés, Asociación de Desordenes de Déficits de Atención).
