Upcoming presentations

Carolyn Means - Wednesday, August 12, 2015

October – St. Paul’s School Annual Beyond St. Paul’s program includes a presentation on the 2016-17 school year admission process for Private Schools and HISD’s School Choice Magnet and Vanguard programs. I will give parents an overview of private school timeline, steps in the admission process and some strategies for success. Later in the month I will present an evening program at St. Paul’s on Strong Executive Functioning Skills – how to develop them in your child and why they are important for school success. If your organization would like to ask about a presentation, please contact me.

Summer Professional Growth

Carolyn Means - Wednesday, August 12, 2015

In July, the ADDA-SR sponsored Utilizing New Technology to Avoid Medication Failure and Side Effects, a half-day seminar presented by Ron Swatzyna and Jay Tarnow of The Tarnow Center. This event was based on a recently published six-year study of the most common brain and body anomalies that create ADHD symptoms and explain how this information can assist in medication selection and treatment. Targeted therapy is a new phase of effective treatment for those who have failed on prior medications.

IECA’s bi-monthly webinars are excellent sources for member consultants to learn more about their profession. The August webinar was Red Flags During the Intake Process: Identifying Students with Hidden Learning or Attention Disorders. Detecting academic barriers to future success is my responsibility as a consultant when I am helping a family with a list of schools for application. If I sense we need to know more about a student’s learning process, I discuss with parents the advantages of a confidential assessment. Often, the first clue to further investigation is when a student with top grades does not have comparable standardized test scores.
