American Academy, a program within American Heritage Schools, will host “Supporting Autonomy and Self-Motivation in Young People with ADHD,” a virtual event via Zoom on Thursday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m.

This event is part of American Academy’s monthly program, “Experts in Learning Differences: A Speaker Series.” Hosted by Alexandra Rollins, admissions director of the American Academy program, the speaker for the January event is Dr. Maggie Sibley.

Sibley is a licensed clinical psychologist in the states of Florida and Washington and an associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, as well as adjunct associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral health at Florida International University. She directs a program of research that focuses on creating engaging, evidence-based interventions for students with ADHD and has authored more than 100 scientific articles on ADHD.

The speaker series will be streamed live virtually, as well as available for viewing following each event. The purpose of the speaker series is to educate families about topics that relate to mild learning differences and are relevant today.

The American Academy’s goal is to provide families with a safe space to ask questions and strengthen their knowledge about how to ensure the success of their child.
