Maureen Bechard, M.S., is a licensed professional school counselor who has loved working with middle school students for more than 30 years. She has promoted a greater understanding of how ADHD affects the lives of adolescents during their middle school years. In her efforts to educate students, parents, teachers and administrators about executive function deficits, she has found that the strategies that are good for those with ADHD, are best practice strategies for all students.
Maureen believes that all students with ADHD should be supported in their efforts to succeed. These creative youth can inspire the world to be a brighter, more positive place.

"The information you provided not only will help me better understand my DAPE students, but also my own son. As I sat and listened I kept thinking how beneficial it would be to have him in a class like yours. Children are different learners than
when we were in school, and not just special ed students, all students. You have recognized this and have provided wonderful tools to meet everyone’s needs."
