This webinar will provide updated insights and better treatment for ADHD based on current research. It is important to understand that roughly 70% of those with ADHD have an additional diagnosis, and many of those individuals with comorbidity have an underlying condition that is solely causing the client to meet criteria for ADHD.

As a result, it is important to learn how to identify the underlying symptoms and causes and to not treat the disorder as a category. In this workshop we will discuss different underpinnings of ADHD through imaging studies and areas of the brain that are most impacted in those with ADHD. This understanding will help clinicians and parents better target interventions.

We will discuss lower order causes found in the orbitofrontal and subcortical areas, as well as higher order weaknesses such as working memory and mental flexibility. We will discuss the DSM-5 criteria for ADHD and clinical profiles in the literature including those with the predominantly inattentive subtype.

Finally, intervention ideas that target the underlying symptoms/causes will be discussed and how to determine which type of services are needed in school (504 plan versus Individual Education Plan).

Why should you Attend: Why are they not responding to stimulants? ADHD is deceptively difficult to treat because the disorder has many different causes and a high comorbidity with other disorders such as anxiety, ODD, and depression. Attend this workshop and learn about the cognitive and behavioral underpinnings of ADHD with an emphasis on treating the symptoms and not the disorder.

Why? Because ADHD is too heterogeneous to treat as a disorder in many cases.By focusing on the clinical symptoms, strategies are more targeted and better address the underlying cause of the diagnosis. Further, many with ADHD have a separate disorder that is responsible for the client meeting criteria for ADHD in the first place. By attending this workshop, you will better understand the nature of ADHD and a more targeted approach to treatment!
