Dr. Sarah Levin Allen, Ph.D – Your Child's ADHD Brain: How it Works, What it Means for School Accommodations & Making Your Child More Independent

Dr. Allen is most known for her work on brain-based learning and program design in schools.

We’ll be sharing the exact same tips Dr. Allen has used to help hundreds of kids build their executive function skills and be more independent within the first year of middle school without having to change schools or change classrooms.

One of the things that impressed me most about Dr. Allen is her ability to make brain science more fun and accessible to people who don’t know anything about it.

In this interview, we’re speaking with Dr. Sarah Allen to show parents how to: understand your child’s ADHD brain better- identify the primary issue your child is having based on their unique ADHD profile- identify the correct strategy to use to address that primary problem- figure out the different ways you can implement that strategy- and lastly, how to help your child be more and more independent in the process.

Middle school children with ADHD are complex. While we know their brains work differently when they learn, we want to think about kids as more than just how they perform in school.

Children learn and develop across multiple domains including how their bodies feel, how they think, how they behave, and how they’re feeling.Dr. Allen will discuss how parents, teachers, and other caregivers can use an understanding of the brain to assess and implement interventions that match each individual child.

First, we will talk about “brain buckets”, a concept Sarah developed to explain the different types of ADHD brains, and how they must be balanced to promote healthy, happy, and successful children.

We’ll also talk about important brain patterns and how to connect that to interventions that will work for your child. Finally, we’ll talk about how to ensure that your child can independently use strategies and perform better in school and at home.

By the end, you will have a take-home guide to help your child build independence.
