The purpose of this workshop is:
- To better understand what ADHD is and its impact on the developing brain.
- To look at how the Montessori Prepared Environment serves the needs of the child diagnosed with ADHD based on scientifically researched interventions.
- To look at additional Montessori friendly interventions that can be easily incorporated into the classroom based on scientifically researched interventions.
- How to help parents and foster partnership for the child.
- To get to know how the law protects the child with ADHD
Meet Megan Trezise
Megan Trezise is an AMI Auxiliary Trainer at the Primary level. Megan holds an AMI Diploma from the Montessori Education Center of Arizona since 2005. She then spent many years teaching in both private and public Montessori schools. It was with the transition to teaching in the public sector that she truly began to find her mission. In working with second language learners, immigrant children, and those living in poverty, she discovered the power of Montessori. While still in the public sector, she moved into Montessori Instructional Coaching, leading a team of nine Primary Guides, offering professional development and pedagogical guidance. This opportunity paralleled an opportunity to work on a Montessori Response to Intervention team serving as the data specialist with the goal of helping special needs children succeed both behaviorally and academically. In addition to being a Montessorian, Megan has been married for 10 years and has a nine year old daughter. Her family lives in the Phoenix Metro area and enjoys volunteering with animal rescues, hiking at the river, and exploring the Arizona wilderness.
