ADHD and Learning Disabilities: Non-Pharmacological Treatments

The CDC now estimates that 11% of all American children have been diagnosed with ADHD. Children with the slightest bit of fidgetiness or behavior issues are commonly being given this diagnosis. Often, educational institutions and physicians recommend psychostimulant medication. Currently, almost five million American children are taking psychostimulant medication. Those wishing for alternative treatments are subjected to a confusing array of for-profit “fixes” for ADHD. This webinar reviews the common sense and evidence-based nonpharmacological treatments for ADHD. SLPs will learn simple techniques that can be employed in their office or that can be recommended to parents. In addition, SLPs will be able to discriminate a confusing array of other diagnoses commonly mislabeled as ADHD, such as bipolar disorder and anxiety. Children with educational deficits are also misdiagnosed as ADHD. This presentation outlines the common types of learning disabilities, thereby helping SLPs discriminate them from ADHD and make proper referrals.
