Dear friend and fellow teacher,

Welcome to Sanity School® for Teachers!

You became a teacher because you want to help kids become lifelong learners. You know what a difference you can make in the life of a child. And you want to make sure you do the best job possible.

When you have children with complex needs in your classroom – kids with anxiety, ADHD, learning disabilities, and so many other challenges – your job becomes so much harder!

If you’re anything like other teachers, you:

  • Feel like your class can be taken hostage by a few challenging students.
  • Waste a lot of time managing challenging behaviors, exhausted by expectations.
  • Struggle to stay optimistic when continuously redesigning student management plans.
  • Desperate for things to be more productive and eager for solutions that actually work.

"I love Sanity School® for Teachers. I am really busy this time of year and I like that I can listen to the modules on my own time where I can focus and learn. I love the information that is being shared and find that each and every session has material that will be useful to me in working with my students, and also helping our teachers work with our students."

- Debi M, Learning Specialist

"As a teacher, the Sanity School® curriculum was a lifeline for a class that was filled with complex, chronic behaviors and parents who were not always ready to face their child’s reality. The section on Executive Function provided essential information for me to create systems and plans. It also provided tangible information to aid in my conversations with parents."

 - Jean M, Teacher, FL

"I signed up for Sanity School® and attended every session. I studied the workbook, read the article links and really tried to adopt the new principles of taking aim on specific issues. Things have improved! As you say, this is a marathon. I appreciate all the ways that this has helped me."

- Allison M, GA

If any of these feel familiar, read on…

Some of your students are struggling – and yet, they are  extraordinarily capable. They need a teacher who will see their potential, and help them realize it without shame, embarrassment, or feeling defeated.

You have what you need to help your students become the independent, successful people you know they have the capacity to be -- in whatever way is right for them. All you need is a bit of guidance and training to help you unlock the key.

You may have tried things before, only to feel disappointed or more frustrated than ever. But if you haven't tried Sanity School® for Teachers, then you haven't tried everything!  Supported by a community of trainers who are making a profound difference in the lives of thousands of students around the world, Sanity School® for Teachers will help you (re)discover that teaching complex kids can be wonderful, fun and rewarding.

Curious? Read on…

Who are we, and why did we create Sanity School® for Teachers?

We are Diane Dempster, MHSA, PCC and Elaine Taylor-Klaus, CPCC, PCC -- certified coaches and the co-founders of ImpactADHD.com (awarded ‘Innovative Program’ status by CHADD -- Children and Adults with ADHD --  in 2011). We are also parents of a combined 6 children between our two families who struggle with a number of medical and neurological challenges including ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, severe allergies, Learning Disabilities and more.

Complex children tend to be surrounded by adults who care deeply, but all too often feel at a loss for how to help kids reach their potential and thrive. Since our skills as coaches turned out to be extremely effective for motivating and empowering children,  we began to teach this coach-approach to parents and professionals around the globe, offering an innovative, practical way to communicate more effectively with complex kids (and all kids, really).

Within a few years, we created a basic training course-- Sanity School® for Parents. Sanity School® provides training enhanced by online coaching and support -- and the results are extraordinary. Once again, this "Innovative Program" was recognized by CHADD, this time in 2017.

Over the years, schools and teachers have regularly requested in-service trainings and presentations. Now, we are bringing our award-winning content directly to teachers, both novices and veterans, alike, with the creation of Sanity School® for Teachers.

"Hello. I just finished Week 6 of Sanity School®. Thank you for this amazing program!. I have already started sharing the way the program has changed my perspective of my students (by helping me to understand them better) and transformed my classroom. In particular, I really love the chart on executive function. I think it is a great tool to use in my school with parents."

-Jessica G, Teacher, NJ

"I had a teacher ASK me for resources so he could learn about ADHD, and I sent him to Sanity School® for Teachers! He was fascinated to learn some of the lesser-known symptoms. He said it makes so much sense because he couldn't figure out why my son can be so advanced with complicated topics, but not able to organize the basic assignments. So many teachers know and recognize the 'typical' ADHD hyperactivity, but they aren't aware of the range and how many kids fly under the radar. And so many of these kids are stressed everyday just trying to get by, and spend a ton of energy trying to look 'normal.’ Thanks for helping teachers understand how to support these kids better."

- Amy M, MN

"I enjoyed Sanity School® for Teachers very much. There are new strategies that I am learning, and while there are also concepts that I know or have heard, it is good to be reminded again and to reflect on the areas that I can improve upon. Thank you for your wonderful lessons!"

- Romana K, GA

Presenting to you – Sanity School®:

Let a Coach-Approach Enrich Your Classroom!

Sanity School® is a six-class course that can radically improve your approach to teaching kids with complex challenges like ADHD, Anxiety, LD and more. Research has shown that with this reality-based training, reinforced by coaching and support, parents coping with complex kids become more confident and calm, and their kids' behaviors begin to improve. Teachers can look forward to parallel results!

In this program specifically for teachers you will learn:

  • Six key challenge areas and the Executive Function challenges behind them
  • How to use the Impact Action Model to address difficult  situations
  • When to use the 4 Critical Response Areas for effective planning and prioritizing
  • To Activate the Brain, Use Positivity and Set Realistic Expectations
  • How to create Systems & Structures that complex kids can use effectively!
  • The relationship between your self care and teaching children self management.

At the end of these 6 lessons, you will:

  • Notice that your students are more productive  and less emotional  – and you are, too!
  • Understand HOW you can help them become more  mature, responsible students
  • Experience more confidence that you are doing all you can to help your students
  • Connect with your students and help them become more productive
  • Gain clarity on the steps to effectively guide students to independence and success
  • and SO much more!…

"Sanity School® was a fabulous course. I have recommended it to the Special Education Department of our School District, which could use some support in learning how to handle our gifted children. Your suggestions have been very helpful for my son and daughter-in-law, who are using what they’ve learned to educate school officials, as well. Thank you, thank you.” 

- Pat B, NY

Get ENERGIZED. Learn a new approach to create a more productive classroom.

"Since finishing the Sanity School® for Teacher lessons, my 13 year old daughter has not had any missing homework and her grades have gone up. I thought I was going through this course to help her, but really I am the one it helped the most. I had lots of information, before, but Sanity School® helped me fit it together to make it work. I think more about what I say and do when interacting with her. Our home is much more calm, and we are much closer now than ever before. Her teacher has even commented on much she has grown over the last 2 months, and thanked me for what I have been doing with her at home!"  

 - Kerilyn M, Two Rivers, WI

"Sanity School® assisted me greatly to accept my son's situation and embrace the differences, just by being curious about why things happen or do not happen. I have tuned in a lot more to the everyday hardships and frustrations my son has, but also to celebrate some of the differences and strengths that go hand in hand. I guess the program has been more about changing the way I view things and changing my response to certain situations. You offer an olive branch to parents that there is hope, and to relax a little and enjoy your children and their differences. Thank you!"

- Justine B, Australia

Sanity School® provides more than 50 new concepts and strategies – large and small, profound and nuanced -- for you to add to your toolbox. As you complete 2 exercises in each lesson, and learn at least 8 – 12 new strategies each class – you'll begin to shift your perspective, your approach, and the outcomes in your classroom.

Sanity School® is divided into 6 lessons. Here’s a detailed look at each of them:

module1

Lesson 1 

A Model for Using a Coach Approach with Complex Kids

5 key takeaways:
  • Focus on your intentions for the program and what is most important for you to enrich your skills and understanding as a teacher.
  • Learn the fundamentals of using the “coach-approach” -- communication skills and strategies that help you more effectively differentiate education for all of your students.
  • Understand when to focus on Prevention vs. Management when facing difficult or disruptive situations.
  • Take a marathon view to managing the challenges your students face. You can’t address every issue at once, so you’ll learn how to prioritize for best results.
  • When you teach from a place of frustration, your students feel your stress and urgency. Teaching from inspiration invites your students to become lifelong learners.

Lesson-1-final
module2

Lesson 2

Activating the Brain

5 key takeaways:
  • Learning and attention challenges generally have a basis in the brain, making it a great place to start when looking for effective solutions for management.
  • In order to activate the brain, you'll gain an understanding of six specific aspects of Executive Function and how those challenges show up for your students.
  • When you identify the difference between naughty and neurological behavior, you'll understand your students' motivations to develop solutions that work long term.
  • Learn 7 different ways to engage the brain to optimize its effectiveness.
  • Stress management enhances your ability to manage a classroom as calmly as you’d like, and your students' ability to perform to their potential.
Lesson-2-final
module3

Lesson 3

Positivity

5 key takeaways:
  • All the research is clear on this point: taking a strengths-based approach when educating creates stronger relationships and fosters student success.
  • When you look to what is going well, you tend to find clues for how to turn around difficult situations. Solutions are evident in other successes.
  • When you create an environment that allows for a degree of error, your students are able to learn from their mistakes and take risks for personal improvement, and stop avoiding tasks to make sure they’re never “wrong.”
  • Everyone gets triggered sometimes. How you handle things when you’re upset helps you teach your students to manage things when they get upset.
  • When you view your students' challenges through a new lens, you'll understand and be better able to inspire them to reach for their own success.
Lesson-3-final
module4

Lesson 4

Shifting Expectations

5 key takeaways:
  • Learn how to set realistic expectations for your students based on where they are developmentally, not just chronologically, so that you know when to support them, and when to encourage them do things on their own.
  • A change in perspective takes into account all of the circumstances around your students' challenges so that you’re able to set clear and fair expectations.
  • Assuming best intentions allows you to play to your students' strengths and work together as a team.
  • Understanding the role of expectations helps you teach your students to advocate for themselves, a key element to future academic (and life) success.
  • When you clearly communicate expectations, there are fewer surprises, and you provide structures that fosters independence.
Lesson-4-final
module5

Lesson 5

Using Systems & Structures

5 key takeaways:
  • Learn how to implement systems that work for individual students and the whole class.
  • Identify strategies for getting students' buy-in and participation in the development of successful structures.
  • Understand the importance of using motivation to engage your students.
  • Identify the five key motivators to teach your students so they can figure out how to help themselves be successful.
  • Learn how to identify why some strategies don’t work, and how to tweak them to find sustainable success.
lesson-5-final
module6

Lesson 6

Putting your Oxygen Mask on First

5 key takeaways:
  • Understand the key elements to emotional health and how to teach them to children and teens.
  • Learn the critical components of fostering resilience, for yourself and your students.
  • When you take care of yourself, you’re in a better position to take care of your students.
  • Get a refresher on the importance of modeling the kinds of behavior you want your students to learn.
  • How to seek allies and ask for help when you need it, so that your students will learn to ask for the help they need, too — and be willing to accept it.
Lesson-6-final

"I loved, loved, loved this course. After more than 8 years struggling to find out how to help & manage my child...I finally feel like I'm on to something. We're talking and working together better now than we EVER had before. I thought the information in the classes was vital."

And a few years later...
 "My son got through his first semester at University without us having to nag him. He stepped up on most everything. Ultimately, we were proud of his efforts. We even had one good "teaching" moment for him that was a quick and agreeable conversation. Before taking your coaching sessions, never would I have thought it could be dealt with so easily."

- Dianna B

"To have a student who needs so much help is a different thing. You need to read, learn, and educate yourself. Sanity School® has definitely given me the tools and tricks that help me understand how to help. Thank you!"

- Emma R, FL

Designed for busy teachers like you

You're busy. When you have full classrooms and a wide variety of students, it can feel impossible to find any time to yourself, much less time to learn what you need to help your students!

This is why Sanity School® for Teachers is designed to fit as seamlessly into your life as possible. The classes are once a week in the evenings (but not too late!), so you can learn while connecting with other teachers.

What if you miss a class? No problem! Recordings of each lesson will be available to you, so you can catch up at your leisure, and listen again and again.

And unlike many snooze-worthy online training programs, Sanity School® for Teachers is a series of interactive workshops -- packed full of juicy information and life-changing tips. You are NOT likely to fall asleep!

We promise you will actually look forward to your classes, and that once you dive into this comprehensive program, you will never look back.

"The whole class was very insightful for me. The dynamics have changed in the house and made things better. I'm a better person because of the classes, I don't know what I would have done without them. I understand more, can relate more, and have more patience. They were very, very useful."

- Audrey N, GA

"For someone with executive functioning issues, studying and organizing for exams was a nightmare. With Sanity School® this has changed. Just last week we got her exam grades back and they were all A's and B's compared to the C's and D's of the past. I am thrilled for her -- and it has given her extra confidence! I recommend taking Sanity School®, working with your child, and bringing them into the process. It works!"

 - Brooke F, RI

"I like how you first build a framework in Sanity School® before you dive down and present the details and "meat." I think understanding the components of the brain and its function is the part to really hammer home time and again, as it is probably the one thing that helps me stay sane."

Gina R, OR

"Sanity School® …..was just what I needed and made a big difference for my family. The recorded tapes are convenient for catch up/make ups, and the format is clear and easy to follow. Sharing with other families experiencing the same daily frustrations gave me both comfort and confidence that I’m not alone or defeated. My house is calmer and the insane times are not so explosive."

Research-driven, reality-tested.

A personal understanding of what it’s really like to have and educate kids with complex challenges is at the heart of Sanity School®. We understand what you are going through, and know that big changes lie ahead for you AND your students.

Here are some common questions you might have:

Q. What do I get when I join the program?

A: As a Sanity School® teacher, you will:

  • Receive training in taking a 'coach-approach' to teaching, delivered in 6 incredible, live, interactive classes
  • Learn invaluable tools, techniques and strategies for tackling complex challenges with confidence!
  • Learn in the comfort of a small group of parents, ending the isolation in a judgment-free zone
  • Have access to video recordings so you can re-watch or listen while jogging, driving, cooking or (our favorite) in the tub!
  • Have access to monthly Office Hours Q & A sessions for three months
  • Have access to our private online members forum, another way to meet fellow participants and discuss your experiences — confidentially.
  • Receive weekly accountability emails, ‘Sanity School® Scoop!’ with links to articles of note and special tips

Q. How is this different from other teacher training programs?

A: Sanity School® is a concentrated program that includes a combination of training, coaching and support, and teaches a "coach-approach" to educating complex kids. In addition to "positivity" and "strategies," which are covered in most behavior management training programs, Sanity School® covers issues specific to complex kids – like "activating the brain," shifting expectations without lowering them, and how to create systems and structures that are really effective for complex kids.

Consider it a crash course for a newbie, or a refresher course if you are a seasoned veteran. Truly, any teacher is welcome. We have made it our focus to ensure that this program hits on the most important things a teacher of any complex kid needs to know. No messing around – we get right to the point!

Q. How much does it cost?

A: The cost of Sanity School® is just $397 -- $197 for 1 teacher, and $694 -- $297 for 2 teachers.

Imagine if the teaching books sitting on your bedside table, waiting for your attention, could actually interact with you and help you make decisions and take effective action.

When you consider that each class is like mixing the training of an education book, with the guidance of a coaching session AND the comfort of a support group, all rolled into one, it’s pretty awesome.

If you were to attend a conference for this kind of teacher training it could easily cost thousands of dollars. If you were lucky enough to have that training delivered as part of your school district's professional development, you would not get three months of follow-up and support to help you implement what you learn in the training.

Sanity School® is a much more modest investment for the same quality training you’d receive at a conference. Given that you can learn from the comfort of your living room, with no travel costs, and you don’t have to worry about the travel time, costs, or the disruptions substitute teachers (even excellent ones) cause in your classroom, this is a much more efficient and effective investment of your time and money!

Q. How long is each class?

A: Each is roughly 75 minutes long.

Q. Who are your Sanity School® instructors?

A: Elaine Taylor-Klaus and Diane Dempster are certified coaches and mothers who have 6 kids with a number of complex issues between them.

Unfortunately, when their kids were younger, the kind of support that would have helped them was not available. This is what inspired them to establish ImpactADHD, as they recognized a huge need for support that makes a real difference using a coach-approach!

After delivering Sanity School® for several years, and being sought after by schools and conferences to teach professionals around the globe, they decided to develop Sanity School® for Teachers, too.

Diane

Q. If I don’t find this useful, is there a guarantee?

A: Yes, we offer a no risk guarantee. If, after the program you don’t feel like you have gotten value from it, let us know within 30 days of the program end, at TheTeam@ImpactADHD.com and your money will be cheerfully refunded.
