Though an outstanding introduction to ADHD, this seminar is also deeply enriching and informative for those already experienced in this topic area. The vast majority of professionals who attend this online seminar have had training already in this topic. Yet they come away with a new level of understanding and a wealth of expanded techniques they can start using immediately. This seminar provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art update on multi-dimensional interventions that go beyond the narrow and outdated “medication plus behavior management” template often put forth in parenting guides, textbooks, and generic ADHD seminars.
As a world-class authority and pioneering innovator in this field, Dr. John F. Taylor is in a position to share with you state-of-the-art clinical applications from several directions for maximum impact on the child, teen or adult with ADHD. Participants are usually delighted with so many creative strategies that upgrade and update their repertoire for home, school, family, and clinical settings. To be truly effective, you MUST have an array of techniques that are valid and effective, whether or not pharmaceuticals are involved. In fact, adding a balanced array of these techniques enhances the effectiveness of medication treatment. This seminar equips you with a comprehensive, multi-dimensional collection of practical, no-nonsense strategies for preventing, controlling, reducing and eradicating much of the ADHD symptom picture at all ages.
This unique seminar details four powerful intervention pathways, each with numerous specific strategies and options. Dr. Taylor puts it all together with clear explanations and user-friendly wording to understand these pathways and the most helpful strategies within each. You can easily share them with parents and teachers, moving them to a higher level of command over symptoms in the classroom and at home. As a pioneering authority on ADHD, Dr. Taylor has refined these strategies over the years. In his books for children and teens, Learn to Have Fun With Your Senses and The Survival Guide for Kids With ADHD, he shares many of these methods to the children themselves, inviting them to become partners in their own treatment.
