When faced with the challenge of identifying the needs of students (ages 6 to 21) with learning disabilities and ADHD, we tend to focus our energy on developing a thorough understanding of the disability itself, which we hope will lead to effective intervention. We know that there are multiple factors in the student’s world which might affect the ultimate outcome. However, it can be difficult, even overwhelming, to shift back and forth from the individual to the larger context.

In this workshop we will present a model that we trust will be a “user-friendly” tool to help maintain the important, broad, systemic view needed for effective intervention. We believe that this approach is crucial when trying to understand what the world is like through the eyes of our students and their families.
