Dr. Julie Gold brings a plethora of experience from over two decades of public education service and private practice to TCL. She began her career as a teacher/counselor at special education residential schools for adolescents with emotional and behavioral disabilities, where she was frequently faced with the question: What comes first –Depression and Anxiety or failure to acquire literacy and math skills? This question drove her inquiry into her graduate studies in School and Counseling Psychology. Dr. Gold was fortunate to have the opportunity to obtain her Masters and Educational Specialist Degree (School Psychology) in a rural setting at Indiana State University and her Doctoral Degree (School Psychology) in an urban community at Northeastern University. Here, she learned that a myriad of risk factors exist that influence student success.

Dr. Gold maintains the premise that Prevention and Intervention are the keys to student achievement and wellness. She has worked tirelessly to provide TIER 1, 2, and 3 services for students at-risk for social, emotional, and learning challenges. Through neuropsychological, formative, and behavioral assessment, consultation, coaching, training, counseling, and on-going reflection, Dr. Gold has learned that equipping teachers, families, administrators, and mental health staff with instructional strategies and support ultimately meets the needs of students in public schools. 

In her free time, she loves spending time with her husband and two sons, enjoying Northern New Hampshire’s outdoors - boating, paddle boarding, hiking, and picking blueberries. She also enjoys going to the gym, cooking, baking, and writing. 

Course participants will gain a deep understanding of the impact attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has on the performance of students in the classroom. Research-based instructional strategies and behavior management strategies will be explored, along with methods to improve executive function skills. The implementation of appropriate accommodations, modifications, and interventions will also be highlighted. This course engages participants with meaningful, applicable, and practical activities with a focus on success for students with ADHD.
