Custom interventions for ADHD
•Attention and timing therapies for children & adults
•Manage intense emotions, anxiety and stress

Self-regulation is the key problem for a child or adult with ADHD. While the child may be hyperactive and unable to control motor impulses, their challenges may shift to managing schoolwork and regulating intense emotions as they move into adolescence. Challenges shift again in adult years as difficulties managing the details of life and their ability to interact with the world at large.

This intervention-heavy course looks at ways to treat ADHD – from childhood into the adult years – through the levels of the disorder. You will learn how to quiet hyperactivity, slow impulsivity, and increase your client’s attention. Teresa Garland, MOT, OTR/L, will give you emotional regulation strategies for children and adults and will show you how positive interaction programs can make a difference in the child or adult’s demeanor. Special attention is paid to techniques for managing anxiety.

Improve your client’s attention and organization skills with:
•Nurtured Heart Approach
•Mindfulness training
•Interactive Metronome®
•Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
•Apps and other fun techniques
