Description

This workshop provides training in specialized treatment for children with ADHD that addresses deficits in Organization, Time Management, and Planning (OTMP), found in over 50% of children with ADHD. The treatment has been developed and tested through systematic research and is highly effective in improving home and school functioning in a lasting fashion. This workshop will offer information about OTMP deficits, methods for selecting appropriate cases, and how to provide an intervention tested in a large-scale randomized controlled trial. Participants will learn details for each treatment session and observe demonstrations of treatment methods. Experience with behavior and cognitive therapy is expected.                                                                                                                                             

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain what typical organization, time management, and planning deficits children with ADHD demonstrate and how they impact home and family functioning.
  2. Systematically evaluate organizational, time management, and planning deficits.
  3. Conduct a manualized treatment to improve organization, time management, and planning skills that are empirically tested and proven to have positive effects on family functioning and academic productivity and performance.
