Teaching Behaved Brains: Strategies for Students With ADHD, Challenging and Disruptive Behaviors, and Emotional and Executive Disorders


Behavior problems in schools and classrooms continue to rise. A recent Education Week survey found that 44 percent of all schools and district leaders say that they are receiving more threats of violence from students and over 66 percent of them say kids are misbehaving more than in 2019. Raising rates of student misbehavior were reported across the board by 73 percent of suburban administrators, 69 percent of urban administrators, and 61 percent of rural or small town administrators. Misbehavior was already bad even before COVID. A 2019 survey by the Education Advisory Board found that 81 percent of school administrators and 71 percent of elementary school teachers reported that the frequency of disruptive behaviors (tantrums, bullying, defiance) in their schools was “more” or “significantly more” than during the three previous years. Incidents of mood disorders and ADHD diagnosis have also been on the rise. A 2018 study by the JAMA found that the prevalence of ADHD has increased from 6.1 percent to 10.2 percent over the last 20 years and some have reported further increases during the pandemic.

This conference will explore the science of human behaviors and misbehaviors to help educators better manage behaviors in the classroom. Discover interventions and strategies for challenging and disruptive students, tantrums, bullying, violence, ADHD and autism, classroom management, emotional and executive disorders, and emotional dysregulation.
