From ADHD to schizophrenia and everything in between, what teachers (educators) need to know about their students’ mental health 

Dr. Dikel will present the differences between normal child and adolescent behaviors and behaviors that reflect underlying mental health disorders, and how to recognize where these behaviors fall on a spectrum, ranging from behavioral (planned, volitional acts that clearly have a function) to the clinical (where a mental health disorder is causing the behavior).
