In recent years, diagnoses of ADHD have considerably increased. This course delves into treatment strategies for home and school to assist children who have difficulty controlling impulsive behaviors, difficulty paying attention, and/or are overly active.
Please note: There are some small audio blips during the presenter's screen sharing portion of the presentation. There is an handout that goes over the same material (https://www.occupationaltherapy.com/files/event/03100/03198/adhd-otsandpt.pdf) if you wish to skip over that portion. We apologize for the inconvenience.
