A Layperson’s Approach to Managing Students with ADHD
We do not need to be experts to be able to manage our kids with ADHD. With a clear goal of what we want them to achieve and a loving, determined heart that hopes nothing but the best for our children, we can all do something to help our kids with ADHD achieve their fullest potential. Paola, who is completing her Master’s in Distance Education from the Philippines Open University, has been working in Milchel for the past eight years. Together with her colleagues, she developed the hostel’s individualised counselling programme where students with academic and character difficulties are given one-to-one guidance and counselling aimed at helping them achieve their academic and personal goals. In this talk, she will share her experiences in dealing with learners with ADHD throughout the years.

Applying AV Brainwave Entertainment Technology for Attention and Learning
Brain waves affect how we feel, think and act. Those with disorders like depression, anxiety or ADHD often have lower brain frequencies, likely due to an under-developed and under aroused frontal lobe. In this session, you will learn about a non-invasive and easy-to-use technology known as “audio-visual entertainment (AVE) system”, a non-medical intervention to correct the low brain wave states associated with these disorders, which can directly influence your attention and learning capacity. You will also get a chance to experience the power of AVE system yourself. Daniel has been promoting non-drug and non-invasive home-based treatment technologies for various health conditions in Singapore. He is the founder of a company specialising in distributing high-tech health and wellness products from Europe and North America. He also works closely with health practitioners and learning institutions in Singapore to promote the adoption of such technologies.
