  • I’ve implemented the accommodations, but they do not always work! Students can still struggle to initiate and complete tasks independently. Teach me something new! Whether you tutor, teach, coach or consult to classroom teachers in regards to executive function skill challenges, the goal is to help students generalize strategies and develop independence. Learn a powerful new approach to teach students the process of how to know the goal, plan, initiate, self-monitor and complete tasks within allotted time frames. Teach students situational awareness, so they can ‘read a room’, self regulate and know how to be goal oriented across various contexts. Innovative methods to help individuals see and sense the passage of hourly and daily time; accurately estimate how long tasks will take, change and maintain their pace; and plan ahead to carry out routines, tasks and long term projects within allotted time frames. Practice new strategies that teach students to develop automaticity for routines and transitions.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Use the Executive Function Situational Awareness Observation Tool to observe and describe student’s executive function skills. 2. State 3 features of the ‘Get Ready * Do* Done Model’. 3. Use the ‘Get Ready * Do* Done Model’ to write an academic lesson plan, to teach task planning and long term project management to students. 4.Develop 2 treatment interventions to teach students to follow routines and transition within and between spaces/tasks. 5. State 3 methods to use an analog clock to teach a student to see the passage of hourly time, to see ‘how time fills up’ and to create visual time markers.

  • Levrini, Abigail
  • Attendees will learn the fundamentals of an empirically based model for ADHD coaching, which can be used independently or to enhance current practice in the mental health field. This approach draws on an empirically based model studied for over a decade in multiple settings, and uses elements of cognitive behavioral theory and psychoeducation to target executive functioning deficits and focuses on clients’ key impairments. The presenter will describe the underlying principles as well as the nuts and bolts of ADHD coaching in the mental health sector. Step-by-step details for gathering information, conducting the intake, establishing goals and objectives, and working through all stages of coaching will be addressed, along with ideas for helpful forms and additional resources. Finally, detailed case studies illustrate how to help clients at different life stages—adults, college students, and adolescents—who present with a variety of ADHD symptoms.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Describe the stages of ADHD coaching as outlined in the model. 2. Identify strategies for addressing ADHD symptoms with common comorbid disorders. 3. Cite ways to empirically measure client progress throughout treatment. 4. Discuss methods for achieving common goals and objectives with ADHD clients. 5. Identify additional resources to enhance your mental health practice with ADHD clients.

  • Brown, Stephen Co-Presenter: Phillip Anderton, PhD
  • This session, put together by CHADD, police officers from England who specialize in ADHD and criminal behavior, focuses on three levels of the problem with ADHD: 1) the strategic level—how the disorder affects police and other agencies’ performance; 2) the tactical level—how limited understanding and lack of early interventions negatively affect the performance of agency teams; and 3) operationally—how the provision of ADHD education tools and agency operational guidance could increase the development of more effective standard operating procedures applied to youths with ADHD. The session will lead delegates through the key stages of effective criminal justice practice (in the UK referred to as prevent and deter, catch and convict, resettle and rehabilitate) and link each stage with specific ADHD implications, concluding with good practice recommendations.
  • LEARNING OBJECTIVES 1. Be able to place ADHD and juvenile justice involvements into the context of social determinants of health 2. Be able to recognize the core symptoms of ADHD in an offender or witness and understand the implications of these symptoms for their professional interactions with affected persons 3. Be able to intervene, at individual and agency levels, earlier and more effectively to ensure young people with ADHD ‘stay out of trouble’ 4. Be able to plan for and deliver more effective services to people with ADHD to break the cycle of recidivism 5. Be able to take their learning, and supplied resources, back into the workplace to use as training tools for colleagues and co-workers

  • Sarkis, Stephanie
  • For some people with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), medication may not be the right answer, and for others, medication alone may not be enough. In this seminar, not only will you walk away knowing the most common and most effective non-medication treatments for ADHD, but you will also know the research on safety and efficacy of each treatment. You will also learn how much these treatments cost, and if the possible benefits outweigh the financial impact on the client/patient. You will also learn the most up-to-date research regarding medication treatments for ADHD. Dr. Sarkis, a psychotherapist and published author with 20 years of experience in treating ADHD, will show you the path to determining the best treatment for clients and patients with ADHD.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Recognize the benefits and drawbacks of non-medication treatments for ADHD versus medication treatment. 2. Determine the most common non-medication treatments for ADHD. 3. Describe the safety and efficacy of non-medication treatments for ADHD. 4. Determine whether the benefits of alternative treatments outweigh the costs to the patient/client. 5. Discuss how neutraceuticals/ supplements and diet may or may not influence symptoms of ADHD.

  • Acosta, Maria T.
  • The diagnosis of ADHD requires the exclusion of other medical and neurological conditions that may be the cause of the behavioral and cognitive deficits. However, in clinical care, we need to provide treatment and interventions for children with neurological or medical problems who present with behavioral and cognitive deficits similar to those observed in typical ADHD patients. Many medical conditions, including traumatic brain injuries, alcohol fetal syndrome, and genetic conditions as Neurofibromatosis type one, are frequently associated with ADHD symptomatology. Neuroanatomic correlations between the symptoms present and the neural pathways affected have provided a better understanding of the clinical manifestations affecting attention and behavior in those patients. Diagnosis and treatment require understanding of these processes. Patients with co-morbidities and other neurological and genetic conditions may benefit from many of the treatments available for ADHD children. A better understanding of the neurobiology associated with this manifestation will provide the clinician a safe pathway to explore those potential interventions for this population.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Review of the most common medical and neurological conditions associated with ADHD-like symptoms. 2. Review of the neurobiological pathways associated with the core symptoms in ADHD 3. Description of the diagnosis process to be considered to evaluate the ADHD -symptoms in these conditions. 4. Assessment of the pharmacological treatment in this population. 5. Review non- pharmacological and psycho-social interventions options in this population.

  • Metacognition is the knowledge of one’s own thinking process and strategies, and the ability to consciously reflect and act on that knowledge to modify those processes and strategies. Metacognitive coaching helps clients reflect on their own thinking processes, change ineffective thinking patterns, monitor their own progress, make changes and adapt their thinking – It helps individuals change how they think. As clients become more skilled at using their monitoring and reflective strategies, they gain confidence and become more independent. In this two-part interactive (and lively) session we will move from theory to application as we explore ways that we can encourage, cultivate and enhance metacognitive capabilities of our clients.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Teach their client’s about metacognition and how to increase it. 2. Use metacognitive strategies to engage their clients’ thinking and to maintain interest and intensity while in the coaching process. 3. Increase their client’s self-reflection, self-responsibility, self-regulation, initiative, goal setting, and time management using metacognitive processes. 4. Use concrete coaching tools, strategies, and activities that promote metacognitive thinking.

  • Weiss, Sharon K.; Co-Presenter: Patrice Garver, PhD; Co-Presenter: Maureen A. Gill, LCSW, ACC
  • Schools are being asked to do the impossible. Given the present educational model and the extraordinary demands on educators, it has become overwhelming to teach the curriculum, address the different styles and rates of learning, provide for those with executive function issues and teach to what will be covered on a state test. This presentation suggests an innovative way to support schools and the educators’ challenge of meeting the needs of the student with ADHD. It looks at creative ways to augment what is offered in the schools by reaching out and working with professionals in the community. Building on the experience of a successful partnership, this presentation discusses some of the pertinent research, innovative ideas and explores potential relationships between private service providers and the educational community.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Discuss the current educational model, including some of the research regarding best practice, and some of the challenges facing educators. 2. Identify ways to determine the varying and often unmet needs in the local schools. 3. Examine ways to reach out to the community or for professionals to communicate with educators in support of the schools. 4. Explore potential pitfalls in the process. 5. Cite successful models of a partnership between the community and schools and list products and outcomes that a partnership can offer.

  • Mahone, Mark
  • The overall goal of this presentation is to demonstrate how processing speed difficulties associated with ADHD impact academic and functional development, especially reading fluency and comprehension. Emphasis will be on research that demonstrates how the “need for speed” (in and out of school) adversely affects individuals with ADHD. The presentation will also focus on intervention strategies that have been shown facilitate response control and efficiency of reading skills.
  • Learning Objectives 1. Describe the anomalous neurobiological development associated with ADHD, how “delayed” development is associated with difficulties on speeded tasks of all types, and how the demands for speed in academic work (including test taking) can affect children with ADHD. 2. Understand how processing speed represents a component of response preparation within the broader executive function construct. 3. Explain how slowed processing speed associated with ADHD contributes to inefficient word reading, slowed textual fluency, and (ultimately) reduced reading comprehension. 4. Summarize how motor and oculomotor anomalies contribute to the understanding of executive control and reading difficulties in children with ADHD. 5. Describe the construct of “sluggish cognitive tempo” and understand its relationship with ADHD, and how it differs from core symptoms of ADHD.
