This is Oscar Cielos Staton from Teachers Talk Live with our precast on ADHD in K12 Classrooms. Watch and participate in our live show by clicking here or simply watch below.

Our upcoming show on ADHD will be our 17th episode of Teachers Talk Live and a special one that I hope helps teachers and parents further understand the needs of students with ADHD in our schools.

We want to inform the public more about what it is. How it is diagnosed and how certain behaviors from a child may be misconstrued as ADHD. What are the steps we take as parents?   These are the questions we want to address on the upcoming show. We will ask our panelists and members of our YouTube Live chat the following questions:

What do ADHD accommodations look like at your school and what should they look like?

What should parents know about ADHD, its diagnosis and their child’s rights at school?

What are the biggest misconceptions of students suspected of having ADHD or students with the diagnosis?

How do students with an ADHD diagnosis qualify for 504 accommodations or special services? And what’s the difference?

Join us and help educate parents, teachers, students and the community on ADHD in the K12 classrooms. You can join in through YouTube live by following our link at this Thursday, May 31 at 7PM Central. Thank you!

Oscar Cielos Staton began his teaching career in 1998 while continuing his passion for film production in Texas. He quickly developed an affinity for working with low socioeconomic Hispanic families. "The lives of my students," he says "very much mirror the life I once had as an immigrant in this country in a public elementary school. Actually, I tell them they are lucky because they have other students similar to them in the same classroom. My experience was that of a true minority in the classroom. Only one other student in my class spoke Spanish!" As a teacher, he established himself as someone in touch with the student experience. Nowadays Oscar continues his educational journey with the Teach Cow website and his podcast Teachers Talk Live, which brings together teachers from all over the world for talks on K-12 Education.
