What’s it like for a kid with ADHD who is trying to succeed in school?  YouTube sensation Gerry Brooks says it must be similar to what it’s like for an administrator with ADHD. 

Watch Gerry Brooks demonstrate what it’s like for students with ADD/ADHD.

Beyond the humor – YouTube sensation (and real-world educator) Gerry Brooks is very concerned about the toll that the pandemic has taken on at-risk students, struggling parents and strained educators. He will keynote the Atlanta Conference in December. Gerry’s Virtual Summit sessions over the last year have garnered high marks and provided many attendees with “very real information that I can implement and work with now.”

The At-Risk & Struggling Students Conference focuses on evidence-based programs and strategies educators can use to prevent dropouts and to help students succeed. Historically, more than 1.2 million students in the United States and Canada drop out of high school each year (with the percentages heavily skewed toward males, low-income and minority students). Without intervention, the COVID Crisis is certain to make those numbers skyrocket.  This conference provides valuable insights and proven strategies for reaching those students who are most vulnerable.
