Celebrate! ADHD Urges Parents to Adopt-A-Teacher

Tragically, most teachers try to change their brightest, most curious students—children with ADHD and Attention Deficit Disorder—with Ritalin rather than changing their teaching styles. Celebrate!ADHD is urging parents to "Adopt-A-Teacher" to improve self-confidence and school performance.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - WASHINGTON, D.C. August 30, 2005 - Tragically, most teachers have not been taught strategies to help their brightest, most curious students—children with ADHD—thrive in the classroom. As a result, frustrated teachers try to change children using Ritalin and pressure, robbing students of their self-confidence and dignity.

Celebrate!ADHD , the nation's preeminent organization equipping children with Attention Deficit Disorder for success, is urging parents of children with ADHD to "Adopt-A-Teacher" this fall.

The organization's innovative two-step program changes the way teachers engage children—using hands-on, experiential activities— and dramatically improves confidence, attention and performance.

Executive Director Kirk Martin advises parents, "First, volunteer in your child's classroom. Busy teachers with large classes need an extra set of eyes, ears and hands."

Secondly, Celebrate!ADHD encourages parents to "Adopt-A-Teacher." This unique service enables teachers to attend the organization's popular Parent and Teacher Workshops, receive a free copy of their forthcoming book, "Celebrate! ADHD," and benefit from unlimited Personal Coaching throughout the school year.

Celebrate!ADHD is subsidizing this program so that parents can give teachers over $500 worth of training and coaching for only $39.00.

"Whether a teacher has a question about a specific child or needs help designing lesson plans, we are committed to equipping teachers to effectively engage creative children," Martin says.

In fact, children with ADHD don't need to be changed—Celebrate!ADHD has witnessed an 85% reduction in Ritalin use by cultivating each child's natural gifts and passions.

"A teacher's attitude can be the most potent prescription," Martin contends. "The Adopt-A-Teacher program can significantly impact our culture. Society desperately needs the energy, creativity, passion and persistence that only children with ADHD possess."

Celebrate!ADHD is equipping children for success by pioneering a number of firsts: In 2006, the organization will unveil the nation's first "School of Creativity and Entrepreneurship"—the only true educational option that capitalizes on the strengths of children with ADHD.

Celebrate!ADHD has declared September 20th, 2005 the first annual NationalCelebrate ADHD Day to acknowledge the significant contributions people with ADHD make to society. On the same day, Martin will mark a first by simultaneously releasing a non-fiction title for parents, "Celebrate! ADHD," and a thrilling novel, "Gifted," about a seventeen-year-old boy with ADHD.
