ADHD: Intervention Strategies for School-Based Therapists

It is critical that professionals thoroughly understand the nature of the diagnosis and the implications for intervention. This 90-minute webinar provides a thoughtful review of cutting-edge research and implications for intervention strategies. The presenter also provides multiple intervention strategies that can be used immediately in practice.
