  • Brown, Thomas E.
  • Prejudices About ADHD - There is now a large body of scientific evidence demonstrating: 1) the nature of ADHD impairments; 2) the negative impact of inadequately treated ADHD on learning, family life, social relationships, and employment; 3) significant differences in brain development and brain functioning in those with ADHD; 4) safety and effectiveness of medications to treat ADHD. Yet many in the general public and some professionals in medicine, mental health and education persist with fears and prejudices about this disorder which cause many with ADHD to avoid seeking evaluation and/or sustaining effective treatment. This pre-conference institute will identify some of these fears and prejudices, exploring underlying psychological and social factors which may create and feed them. It will also review relevant scientific evidence and suggest strategies to address effectively these fears and prejudices in various contexts. LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1) the nature of ADHD impairments; 2) the negative impact of inadequately treated ADHD on learning, family life, social relationships, and employment; 3) significant differences in brain development and brain functioning in those with ADHD; 4) safety and effectiveness of medications to treat ADHD.

  • Katz, Mark
  • Succeed at Life: The Role of Human Understanding in Overcoming a Difficult Past, The Role of Human Misunderstanding in Prolonging One - Why do some children who fail at school still manage to succeed decades later at life? And what can we learn from their experiences? During this institute, we will explore the sources of resilience, important protective influences and wide ranging turning point experiences in the lives of successful individuals who struggled during their years in school. We will also share specific ways in which their life experiences can be used to help others (children, youth and adults) who currently struggle much as they did years ago. LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1) Participants will be able to identify sources of resilience and protective processes found in the lives of individuals who overcame exposure to multiple child risks 2) Participants will be able to identify practices and resources that can successfully help children, youth, families and adults re-frame adversities in a new light. 3) Participants will be able to identify promising practices that can positively alter the social climate of school, reduce aggressive and violent behavior campus-wide, and buffer children, youth and young adults exposed to prolonged and multiple risks. 4) Participants will be able to identify practices that are preventing and reducing stigma and self-stigma among children, youth and adults struggling with various learning, emotional and behavioral challenges. 5) Participants will gain a greater awareness of common co-occurring childhood risks that increase the likelihood of chronic school failure, and emotional, behavioral and later life health-related problems.

  • Chester, Laurie A. Wheeler, Rebecca
  • •Roadblocks to success come in many shapes and sizes, causing varying degrees of impediment to success. Having AD/HD can make the obstacles even harder to circumvent. Among the most common roadblocks coaches observe in their clients are a lack of self Awareness, poor Management skills (i.e. executive functioning skills), and restrictive Perspectives or Preconceptions, what we refer to as AMPs. This session will present an assortment of coaching tools and techniques using a variety of methods including videos of actual coaching sessions, demonstrations of role playing and modeling, and visuals, thus providing tangible take-away strategies that others can use to help their clients "AMP-up" by building awareness, improving management, broadening perspectives, and breaking down preconceptions. LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1) Discuss three of the most common roadblocks that stand in the way of clients reaching their goals: lack of Awareness, deficient Management skills, and self-limiting Preconceptions or Perspectives — or AMP. 2) Demonstrate via real-life vignettes how coaching techniques such as modeling, role playing and visualization can help AD/HD clients make the critical connections and breakthroughs to set them free and move them forward. 3) Illustrate via video recordings additional coaching techniques to broaden client’s awareness, management skills and perceptions. 4) Cite relevant research related to roadblocks and remedies discussed in this presentation. 5) Review ways coaches can play a critical role in helping clients discover strategies for managing their unique AD/HD symptoms and lead a more productive and fulfilling life.

  • Schachar, Russell J.
  • •Most people have an intuitive sense of what “inheritance” or “genetic” means. For most of us, genetic traits like ADHD are inherited from our parents and passed on to our children. Over the last decade there has been a dramatic increase in our understanding of how genes affect us, how they interact with environmental risks and how they show up as traits like ADHD. The Institute will bring the audience up to date on this progress. Participants will gain a better understanding of the basics of genetics and the role of genetics in ADHD. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Workshop is designed to help members of the audience: 1)Define some of the terms that are commonly used in discussing psychiatric genetic research; 2)Summarize how genes work in the body; 3)List the ways in which researchers go about deciding whether a trait or disorder like ADHD is genetic; 4)Describe the evidence for genetic influence on ADHD and be able to answer the question “Is ADHD inherited?”; 5)Explain the difference between genomics and phenomics.
