This educational activity has been developed in response to a specific request from the Lafourche Parish School nurses.

The goal is to enhance the participant’s ability to effectively manage children and teens with behavioral disorders and to incorporate reasonable accommodations to help them succeed. The participant will recognize measures to effectively manage the child with autism, ADD, ADHD, and bipolar disorder. The participant will incorporate reasonable measures to accommodate individuals with these behavioral disorders in an effort to help them to be successful.
Target audience: School nurses and health care personnel who work with and care for children and teenagers with autism, ADD, ADHD, and bipolar disorder.
