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.
