A Neurocognitive Understanding of ADHD and SLD: Practical Assessment and Intervention

4.75 CE Hours Available

This program examines ADHD and Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) disorders from a neurocognitive processing perspective called PASS (Planning, Attention, Simultaneous, Successive). Kathleen and Jack will lead an interactive workshop that explains how this brain-based approach detects different profiles of neurocognitive strengths and weaknesses for individuals with ADHD and SLD. The presenters will examine case studies and show how to intentionally and transparently offer instructional interventions that align with students’ needs based on the inter-relationships between PASS, Executive Function, Social Emotional Skills, and Impairment.
