Intervention for Executive and Social Functioning in Children and Teens with ADHD

Welcome to our presentations for parents, caregivers and professionals about how to support and bolster executive and social functioning for children and teens with ADHD. There are two sets of presentations; one targets parents and caregivers, and one targets educational professionals and other professionals who work with children. Click the links below to watch the presentations designed for you.

Each presentation offers supplemental written material for additional background, more specific details and, in some cases, updated information.

Thank you for your interest in this topic! Our patients and their families inspire us with their grit, creativity, passion and perseverance.
