Canadian Psychologist Dr Caroline Buzanko will help participants develop an in-depth understanding of the complexities of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) and present specific, detailed, and hands-on strategies to help children manage the emotional and behavioral challenges associated with ADHD. Current models of ADHD conceptualise it as a disorder of behavioural inhibition which impairs executive functioning, leading to difficulties with self-regulation, attention, distractibility and organising and planning behaviours. Individuals with ADHD can be very successful in life, however it is also the case that without appropriate identification and support, ADHD can have serious consequences, including school failure, family stress and disruption, depression, relationship problems, substance abuse, accidental injuries, and job failure. Given the substantial risk factors for children and young people with ADHD, developing effective interventions to promote educational and social success are critical. When managed effectively, ADHD can be an asset that supports individuals’ successes and can be celebrated.
- A comprehensive and contemporary understanding of ADHD, the ADHD brain & Executive Functions.
- Deconstructing ADHD myths and misunderstandings. • Identifying the key assets and strengths of ADHD and how to optimise them.
