For the practicing mental health clinician, the ability to rapidly identify processing disorders and make targeted treatment recommendations is one of the therapeutic skills which separate the good from the great. End this seminar recording and gain a wide range of concrete skills including assessment of processing and organizational deficits from multiple perspectives, and managing symptom overlap among related disorders. You will be able to think clearly about the common “Bipolar or ADHD?” assessment question. By the end of the seminar recording you will know how to avoid the most common diagnostic error in executive dysfunction assessment. Take home a “toolbox” of developmentally appropriate targeted interventions for the executive dysfunctions associated with ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, and Central Auditory Processing Disorder.
