Despite the dramatic growth of new medications and effective psychotherapies for ADHD, parents and families find that health care providers are often not able to give them the types of effective support needed to successfully parent a child with ADHD. Effectively negotiating this 20-year period from childhood through adolescence and into successful adulthood requires much more than pills or visits to therapists. Dr. Jensen reviews what over 100 parents have reported to be the missing information, what got them through the 20-year maze. Not only do doctors and therapists need this information, but it is also very important from parents just beginning this journey.
Peter blames most of his success on his ADHD. Join him for this energizing session where he'll explain how he uses his ADHD to his advantage, what tricks and secrets he's learned over the past 30 years, including why airplanes are your best friend to get work done, and why everyone should jump out of a plane at least once. Peter Shankman is credited with building Help a Reporter Out, (HARO) which changed the way news is gathered and publicity is obtained.
Co-Presenter: Jacobsen, Kristen
You may have read about executive function skills and heard about related terms. Let’s go beyond the book definition and learn how to recognize the EF skills that might be either facilitating or impeding learning during instruction. How do all of these skills work together in a moment to enable an individual to effectively create a goal, form a plan, and self monitor through tasks in a timely and efficient manner? 360 Thinking is an innovative model of executive function skills that provides a new perspective for understanding and supporting executive function skills in educational and home settings.
