Webinar Length (Hours):

ADHD: Transformative Practices for Children and Teens

ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed neurodevelopmental disorder. Over 10% of the school-age population are diagnosed and many others show symptoms. However, it is one of the most overlooked and misunderstood areas of exceptionality. This 6-hour course examines ADHD from neurological, emotional, academic, and social angles. Using cutting-edge research Lori formulates practical, immediately usable intervention strategies. Participants gain a more comprehensive understanding about WHY children with ADHD respond in the ways they do. With this information, a team of therapists, parents, and teachers can develop a toolbox that includes mindfulness, executive functioning, academic and social-emotional supports for this population.
