Diagnostic Center North: ADHD: What It Is, What It Isn't, and What To Do About It

Results from the National Survey of Children's Health (NSCH) from 2016 indicate that approximately 9.4% of children ages 2 - 17 have received a diagnosis of ADHD. This statistic suggests that 6.1 million children grapple with ADHD symptoms and the number is on the rise. This training highlights the historical implications of the current increase in this diagnosis, and offers information on how to accurately identify and assess for ADHD. This training also reviews best practice and evidence-based interventions to support students with an ADHD diagnosis in an academic setting.

    Participants Will:
    • Gain a better understanding of the historical implications of the current rise in ADHD diagnosis.
    • Learn strategies to assess for ADHD.
    • Learn evidence-based strategies and treatment interventions for working with students who have an ADHD diagnosis.
