Most adults understand the basics of ADHD and have some tools which help some of the youth the serve. However, youth with ADHD can present with significant symptom variability and unpredictability of what interventions will work. This variability is due to the 6 areas of executive functioning impacted by ADHD and the unique wiring of each youth’s brain. In this presentation, participants will learn about a new model for understanding ADHD through understanding these six areas of executive functioning. You will learn how these areas impact a youth’s learning style, response to traditional interventions, and new ways to engage and support youth with ADHD diagnosis or symptomology.
