ADHD: Supporting Misunderstood Minds --Special Topics in Special Needs
Understanding ADHD begins with an awareness of how the brain’s attention and organization systems function. Dr. Korb will show how the individual variations in these abilities affect how a child learns and behaves and will provide behavioral, educational, and medical strategies to address these difference. Participants will leave with an understanding of how the attention system functions, how a diagnosis of ADHD is made, interventions to support attention, strategies to build organizational skills, and the types of medications used to treat attention dysfunctions.
