THIS IS A ZOOM EVENT - Registration will close 48 hours before presentation.
Registrants must attend full session to receive 2 CEUs.

This presentation reviews the signs and symptoms of attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder among teens and young adults, and guides therapists on how to aid with early identification and intervention. Using a strengths-based approach, Dr. Blied explains how symptoms of ADHD can be masked in high functioning or twice exceptional individuals, and how you - as the therapist - can support clients in seeking evaluation and effective interventions. You will also learn about the ADHD evaluation process, important considerations for differential diagnosis, and how you can know when it’s time to refer for out testing. Furthermore, Dr. Blied will share tips and strategies your clients can utilize for self-management of impairing symptoms, along with how you can help reinforce these adaptive changes.
