Our methods of diagnosing and understanding ADHD has changed dramatically over the past 20 years with new research and technology including functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) of the brain. Over the course of a day, you will be introduced to how the new research has changed our theories and treatment models for ADHD and glimpse into what the future research may inform our understanding of this previously perplexing and misunderstood diagnosis in children as well as adults. This course will complete an overview of the most common questions caregivers and educators have about ADHD to provide the learners with prepared responses to the questions in digestible and simple terms. The seminar will be presented through zoom and will include time for questions, practicing skills, and interacting with others in the course. Workshop attendees can expect to: • Review research on the impacts of ADHD throughout childhood and into adulthood. • Develop skills to be able to engage in psychoeducation with families and teachers. • Explore common secondary impacts of ADHD and their impacts on functioning.
