Understanding ADHD begins with an awareness of how the brain’s attention and organization systems function. Dr. Korb will show how the individual variations in these abilities affect how a child learns and behaves and will provide behavioral, educational, and medical strategies to address these differences. Participants will leave with an understanding of how the attention system functions, how a diagnosis of ADHD is made, interventions to support attention, strategies to build organizational skills, and the types of medications used to treat attention dysfunctions.
