Unlock potential through skill-building

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts approximately 6-16% of children (, 2023). Children with ADHD often experience challenges with emotional regulation, social skills, executive functioning and self-management, among other areas of functioning. These difficulties can lead to low self-esteem, increased conflict and poor educational outcomes (Kuriyan et. al., 2013). FBAs and BIPs completed by BCBAs have become increasingly more common for children with ADHD in school settings (Rapp et. al., 2020). Additionally, treatment recommendations from the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics include behavioral therapy. However, ABA therapy is not widely practiced as a way to develop functional skills and bolster areas of deficits within this population. Further, parents of children with ADHD often report frustration with the lack of appropriate therapeutic options available to adequately address performance deficits. With more training and support, BCBAs could be an optimal choice as practitioners. This training supports the development of BCBAs interested in treating the ADHD population. Participants will learn specific teaching strategies, assessment techniques and programming to effectively hone the abilities of children with ADHD.
