ADHD, Trastorno por Déficit de Atención e Hiperactividad

Both ASLP students and teachers have received workshops and talks concerning Emotional Intelligence, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and gifted students during the month of November.
First of all, ASLP invited Ms. Ester Moreno, who has an impressive background in children with ADHD and high intellectual capabilities to come and speak on several occasions to the Middle and Upper School students and then another time to teachers. Not only is Ms. Moreno a psychologist and a teacher with over 26 years of experience, but she frequently collaborates in workshops with the University of Las Palmas and with different organizations in Gran Canaria.
The objective of the workshop with the students was to have them experience what it is like first hand to have ADHD so that they can understand and help any student who may be ADHD. Ms. Moreno gave the students many examples and placed them in similar situations that ADHD students face. At the end of the workshop, the students really appreciated the workshop and were happy to have a better understandin
In the case of the teachers, there were two workshops which also lasted longer: one on ADHD and one on gifted students. Here the objective was the same. By role playing, teachers experienced the difficulties students in these situations face and are now better able to help them.
Furthermore, the students in grades 11-12 were visited by Ms. Esther Diaz, who is the Head of Admissions at IE University in Madrid and were given a workshop on Emotional Intelligence. Students learned basic self-awareness and motivational concepts and techniques as well as participating in several hands on activities. Ms. Diaz also gave the students information about IE University, degree offerings, facilities and admissions process.
Lastly, 12th grade students also visited the college fair in Las Palmas known as Unitour. Unitour is considered one of the leading university fairs in Europe where many Spanish and international universities participate. Here our students received information on admissions process, scholarships and how to make the right choice.
