Description: This free webinar will highlight the complexities of treating clients diagnosed with ADHD and to equip participants with effective strategies.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (2015), 9.5% of all children ages 3-17 are diagnosed with Attention Deficit-Hyperactive Disorder by 2015. These 6 million children will grow into teens and adults, many of whom will have no ongoing professional support.
Case studies will be used to demonstrate to participants how different strategies work with teen and adult clients.
Participants will be given a poll to vote as to which strategy to use in each part of the case study.
The overall message is to highlight the complexities of treating clients diagnosed with ADHD and to equip participants with effective strategies.
