NNJ Chapter Meeting

June 27, 2016

“Challenges And Solutions To Working With Clients With ADHD" 

Presented by Diane Thomson

Often PO’s can’t understand why a client remains disorganized, can’t follow through on tasks between sessions, nor seems to take in new skills, despite best intentions to help make their lives better. These are often signs of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), which is a neurobiological condition that has a profound impact on a person's ability to focus, manage time, initiate action, recognize consequences and complete tasks. People who have this condition are often very intelligent but unable to live up to their potential. Diane Thomson, MS, COC will describe how it shows up for both children and adults, the brain challenges that underlie it, and how you can help guide your clients in managing it.
