  • Gregory Coffey, PhD
  • ADHD is a neuro-developmental lag syndrome with co-morbid disorders (depression, anxiety), that delays, interferes with, and consequently shapes and alters the developmental course of life. Untreated, ADHD affects learning patterns, relationships, social skills, perspective taking, emotional regulation, impulse control, problem solving, experiential organization, and executive task follow through. Untreated adult ADHD is an inconsistently sequenced cognitive behavioral outside/in feedback loop. This disorder untreated is like bumping into experience and possibly learning from it based upon salient consequences. The resulting design of personality is thus lopsided toward areas perceived to be self-stimulating, highly rewarding, personally salient and satisfying. As a result, ADHD adults develop an inconsistent, unpredictable, at times backward experiential learning model. Multi-sensory, high stimulation activities, settings, people, and experiences drive this unique puzzle piece of personality development.
  • Learning Objectives: 1. Provide an inclusive visual model for understanding the multiple forces at work in treating adult ADHD. 2. Understand executive function deficits and their role in shaping adult behavior. 3. Provide mood management techniques to improve social skills. 4. Understand the most commonly utilized defense mechanism by those with the disorder. 5. Improve social communication and perspective taking. 6. Employ healthier compensation methods for dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.

  • Diane M. Kennedy; Rebecca A. Banks, MA
  • Because of their unique abilities and sensitivities, twice-exceptional children (Gifted, ADHD, ASD) are often difficult to identify. Many of the behaviors associated with twice-exceptionality are also expressions of hidden challenges that affect a child’s success in the classroom. Professionals and educators are often limited in their understanding of the emotional characteristics and needs of twice-exceptional children and of how the interplay between intelligence and disability impacts the child. The best way to help twice-exceptional children is to take a whole child approach that focuses on their areas of strength first even as therapies are used to support their challenges.
  • Learning Objectives: 1. Be able to define the term twice exceptional and better identify 2e (twice exceptional) children. 2. Recognize behaviors that are expressions of both giftedness and disabilities including ADHD and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders). 3. Understand the social emotional needs for 2e (twice exceptional) children. 4. Become familiar with the interplay between intelligence and disability and ways this impacts the 2e (twice exceptional) learner. 5. Be able to recommend interventions that support abilities and challenges using the whole child approach.
