In a single classroom, it is quite conceivable that a teacher might be dealing with 4 or 5 different disorders.

This webinar will focus on some of the most common “acting out” disorders in young people including:
This webinar will also provide insight into the 10 most common issues and practices educators and other professionals must understand in order to work effectively with students with both “acting in” ( anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder) and “acting out” disorders. This webinar is appropriate for both new attendees and those who attended the original “Wired Differently” webinar in April, which was more focused on “acting in” disorders.
