11. (PESI) Advances in the Management of ADHD: Evidence-Based Medications and Psychosocial Treatments

Program: PESI, Inc.

Audience: PESI Activity Attendees ONLY

Dates: 1/1/2023 to 3/31/2023

The past 10-15 years have witnessed a number of major developments in the medications and delivery systems available for the management of ADHD. Dr. Russell Barkley discusses the types of medications now available for ADHD management and the various delivery systems developed to extend the effectiveness of the medications across the day. For each medication, he will present the major beneficial effects and side effects. He will also discuss various issues clinicians should consider in selecting medications to use with a patient with ADHD, such as those issues related to the social context, the patient's characteristics, and any comorbid conditions that may exist. This recording then moves on to an overview of the science-based approaches to the psychosocial management of ADHD. It also discusses those treatments that, while popular, have little evidence for their effectiveness in managing the disorder.
OBJECTIVES: 1. Assess and characterize the utility of current FDA approved ADHD management medications for symptom management 2. Discriminate between effective and unproven adjunctive ADHD interventions and its treatment implications 3. Articulate the beneficial effects and potential side effects associated with ADHD medications in relation to assessment and treatment planning
Since the Covid-19 Pandemic began, children across the country and the world have experienced significant changes within their homes, schools, and communities. Interactions with family members, teachers, therapists have suddenly shifted, and become unfamiliar, resulting in less productive opportunities for learning and growth. Children with autism are especially vulnerable to negative impacts, as they work to process complex emotions and implement successful coping strategies in their new environment. Through the development of a trusting relationship, children with autism can begin to gain the co-regulation skills necessary to develop self-awareness, and ultimately empower independent problem-solving and self-monitoring skills. The initial development of trust and positive regard within a relationship is crucial when supporting emotional advocacy and communication skills. Join me in this exciting, innovative, and evidence-informed recording. Finish feeling invigorated, with a new plan of action for how to use standard models and strategies in new ways to facilitate meaningful and lasting trauma recovery.
Virtual Reality (VR) has now emerged as an efficacious tool in many areas of assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation in children and adults!

This session provides exemplars of how VR can be used across a range of childhood health conditions including Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Cerebral Palsy, sensorimotor impairments, and more! The capacity of VR to create emotionally evocative and cognitively engaging embodied experiences makes knowledge of its use in clinical care essential for 21st Century clinicians!

17. (PESI) Early Intervention for ASD: Building Rhythms in Relationships through DIR®

Program: PESI, Inc.

Audience: PESI Activity Attendees ONLY

Dates: 1/1/2023 to 3/31/2023

Rhythms in life are present in many forms, and for children and families, these rhythms are most present within their interactions and daily life. Yet, a child with ASD may have difficulty with rhythmicity due to underlying sensory processing and motor challenges, which impacts synchrony within relationships. Looking through a Developmental, Individual, Relationship-based® (DIR) lens, Stacy Rosello, MA, OTR/L, will teach you why rhythms are important to early intervention for autism. You'll learn strategies and tools to help foster and match rhythms between the child and caregiver. Attend and you'll learn how to:

• Recognizes the unique neurobiological profiles of the child and caregiver

• Help the caregiver understand the idiosyncratic characteristics and subtle nuanced signals of their infant, toddler or preschooler

• Match child and parent rhythms within their interactions and teach the caregiver how to respond sensitively and to adapt contingently by embedding rhythms into routines and rituals, the child adapts and becomes empowered, driving development. In time, these meaningful experiences create connectedness and cherished family bonds.
OBJECTIVES 1. Theorize the reasons why achieving rhythm in a relationship for a child with ASD may be difficult. 2. Use DIR strategies to support rhythmicity and "synchrony” in interactions to foster relationships in a child with ASD and caregiver. 3. Create rhythmicity within relationships to build routines and rituals that foster family bonding.
Do you work with children and adolescents who struggle paying attention, are severely disorganized, have difficulty making transitions and are unable to make plans? They repeatedly act out and meltdown-seemingly unaware of the consequences of their behavior.

Implement specific intervention strategies to improve recall, organization and planning, and self-management skills in children with Executive Functioning (EF) deficits. 3. Utilize video modeling as an intervention strategy to target social-communication skills deficits and subsequent behavior difficulties in children with EF deficits. 4. Integrate visual strategies to support the way children and adolescents receive information and retain it in long-term memory. 5. Integrate metacognitive strategies to provide structure, predictability and routines to improve children's level of functioning. 6. Utilize self-regulation strategies to help children identify their emotions and level of emotions and to improve their level of functioning.

26. (PESI) Smart but Scattered Adults - Manage ADHD by Targeting Executive Skills

Program: PESI, Inc.

Strategies to improve the ability of adults with ADHD to: -Get organized -Manage time -Control emotions -Avoid procrastination -Stay focused -Control impulses -Shift gears/roll with the punches -Keep track of it all Many adults with ADHD fail to finish college, hold down a job, progress in their career, or maintain satisfactory relationships with friends and family. Failure and the recognition that they are working well below their potential erode self-confidence and eat away at self-esteem. Even highly motivated clients with ADHD struggle to follow through on the changes they need to make to improve their physical or emotional well-being. They know they need to change, they know what they need to do to change, they may even be able to take a step or two toward making those changes-and then they plateau or give up. What's getting in the way is not their unwillingness or resistance to change, but weak executive skills. Executive skills are underlying brain processes that help people manage their everyday lives, get things done, control their emotions, and help them manage obstacles that interfere with productivity and behavior change. Attend this seminar and learn cutting-edge neuroscience on executive functioning and practical strategies for your ADHD clients to help them overcome the obstacles presented by weak executive skills. At the end of the day you will be able to best help your clients assess their executive skill strengths and weaknesses and create an action plan that is realistic and leads to true and lasting change.
