» ADHD 360°: Optimizing Success with ADHD
Aug 13 to Oct 01, Online webinar - Available until May 1, 2021
Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a complex, heterogeneous disorder. When left unmanaged, ADHD is associated with long-term pervasive impairment across all areas of functioning. Recent models of ADHD have conceptualized ADHD as a disorder of behavioural inhibition, impairing executive functioning (EF), which lead to difficulties with self-regulation, organizing and planning behaviours, attention, and distractibility.

Given the substantial risk for students with ADHD, conducting valid and collaborative assessments, as well as developing effective interventions to promote student success, are critical to mitigate associated impairments and long-term risks. In this learning series, clinicians, educators, and families will develop a 360° understanding of ADHD to promote student success in all areas of functioning. Participants will learn more about the ADHD brain, how EF deficits manifest, self-regulation, effective teaching practices, and practical strategies to optimize the ADHD brain and the child’s overall social, emotional, and behavioural functioning. Practical case-base material is presented so participants can easily adapt strategies to meet the unique needs of their students.

Importantly, there are essential components to optimize assessments and interventions that are not widely known. This webinar is therefore vital for anyone working with children with ADHD. Participants will learn the critical steps to take to address the shortcomings of diagnostic assessments. Further, participants will learn imperative approaches to overcome the gaps that medications and behaviour modification cannot address.

When managed effectively, ADHD is an asset that supports individuals’ successes. There are so many positive qualities of ADHD that need to be celebrated, which are also addressed. By the end of the webinar, participants will have a renewed outlook on ADHD, and they will be better equipped to identify ADHD and design and implement effective intervention programs for children with ADHD. webinars@jackhirose.com
