Full-Day Workshop

Seminar: ADHD, Sensory Processing, and Dysgraphia

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a common diagnosis in pediatric practice today. Attention deficit can be a diagnosis, but it can also be a symptom of underlying neural inefficiency. As we dig deeper into sensory processing, we discover multiple facets that forms part of a developmental hierarchy that enables us to use clinical reasoning in both assessment and intervention. Dr. Russell Barkley and Dr. Edward Hallowell stress the importance of self-regulation and self-reflection as key components to consider, both of which overlaps into sensory processing practice. This 1-day workshop will showcase the use of the sensory processing lens when assessing and planning intervention for the different components of ADHD, including a look at the learning disability of dysgraphia that frequently coincides with ADHD. Theory will be made practical through multiple treatment ideas and illustrated through video and discussion. Both the clinical and school therapist will feel supported by this journey into ADHD.

Testimonials

“Thank you, Maude, for a very informative and thorough course on ADHD and Executive Functioning. As a parent of kids with ADD and / or Executive Functioning challenges, it has been invaluable. My understanding of working memory, attention and executive functioning and their inter-dependence has improved by leaps and bounds. I have no doubt that all the professionals involved in the webinar will be enhancing greatly the quality of therapy their clients will be receiving. And I know what questions to ask of them and understand better why certain therapies are employed.”
