(Nov. 10, 2010)--As part of UTSA Diversity Month, UTSA Disability Services will host two workshops on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) at noon and 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 12 in the University Center Denman Room (2.01.28). The 45-minute workshops are free and open to UTSA students, faculty and staff.
Gary Barnard, clinical and consulting psychologist with the ADHD Clinic of San Antonio, will present the workshops, which will include audience discussion. He will provide practical information related to the challenges of ADHD by looking at the brain behavior relationship and a model for understanding.
Participants will learn how lifestyle choices can help those with ADHD be more successful and feel better. For those with ADHD, there also will be information on strategies for success in school, career and family. Certificates of attendance will be available for students receiving extra credit or points in classes.
Symptoms of ADHD include being easily distracted, difficulty focusing, losing things, trouble meeting deadlines, difficulty concentrating, and difficulty in organizing tasks and time management.

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
