Dr. Ellen Braaten, an esteemed expert in child psychology and neurodevelopmental disorders, invites you to delve into the intricate world of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and executive functions (EF) in youth to explore the challenges and the solutions.

ADHD affects up to one in ten children and adolescents, presenting challenges in executive functions, the cognitive processes crucial for optimal learning and behaviour management.

In this comprehensive, online course, Dr. Braaten navigates the latest scientific advancements in youth ADHD and EF research, offering invaluable insights into diagnosis and treatment approaches. Special emphasis is placed on understanding the role of processing speed, self-regulation of affect, and the nuances between “hot” and “cold” executive functions.

Through real-world clinical scenarios, you will explore the diagnostic hallmarks and associated symptoms of common EF deficits in youth ADHD, including working memory, planning, processing speed, and cognitive flexibility. Neuropsychological profiles and common comorbidities will be dissected, providing a roadmap for intervention and developmental progression.

Challenges in diagnosis, eligibility for special education services, and optimal accommodations for students with ADHD will be addressed, alongside evidence-based practices for supporting their learning and developmental needs. And you’ll gain insights into the pivotal role of motivation, goal setting, and personalized treatment strategies in effectively managing youth ADHD in educational settings.

Join Dr. Ellen Braaten in unraveling the complexities of youth ADHD and executive functions, and gain the tools and knowledge you need to empower kids with ADHD to thrive academically and beyond.
