Its a GIFT
  • Edward Hallowell, M.D.
  • Dr. Hallowell’s presentation will focus on a strength-based approach to ADHD as presented in his book, Delivered from Distraction. When the diagnosis of ADHD emphasizes what is wrong with a person, that person immediately starts to see himself in those negative terms. Shame, fear and self-doubt grow. However, when the treatment of ADHD begins with an effort to find what’s good in a person by using a strength-based approach to ferret out their hidden strengths and emphasizes first and foremost what is positive, then the person sees himself in a positive light. This is Dr. Hallowell’s goal: to help people master the power of ADHD while avoiding its pitfalls. His message will be all encompassing as he talks about what it is like to have ADHD, explains some of the brain science behind it, and discusses how to get diagnosed properly and the available medicinal and non-medicinal treatments.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Describe a strength-based approach to ADHD 2. Identify benefits of changing environment to treat ADHD 3. List recent research into ADHD 4. Examine benefits of exercise, nutrition, and other non-medication approaches 5. Treat ADHD in a comprehensive 5 step fashion: Connect, Play, Practice, Mastery, Recognition

Its a GIFT
  • Stephan M. Silverman, Ph.D.; Marla B. Shapiro, Ph.D., N.C.S.P.
  • A recent NY Times article cautioned readers to “Avoid an expensive neuropsychological evaluation,” citing experts asserting that it’s costly and unnecessary for diagnosing ADHD. When conducted by experienced clinicians, however, comprehensive evaluation can be an invaluable tool for ruling out other disorders and disabilities with symptoms that may mimic ADHD, understanding the functional impact of ADHD on an individual’s functioning across settings, and for guiding intervention planning. Dr. Shapiro and Dr. Silverman will provide an overview of current conceptualizations of ADHD in adults, with an emphasis on qualitative and quantitative tools that clinicians can use to provide a comprehensive profile that can guide intervention planning. Comprehensive evaluations for post-secondary and high-stakes testing accommodations will be highlighted.
  • Learning Objectives 1. List the core symptoms of ADHD 2. Re cognize co-existing conditions and disorders to be ruled-out in making a differential diagnosis 3. Discuss relevant diagnostic and legal documents impacting diagnosis and evaluation, such as the DSM-IV-TR, proposed DSM-V, and ADAAA 4. List the components of a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation, highlighting qualitative and quantitative methods of evaluating functioning (and functional impact) across multiple settings and domains. 5. Discuss comprehensive assessment facilitates understanding of the functional impact of ADHD symptoms and development of multi-modal intervention plans.
