#63: OT and ADHD with Bryden Carlson-Giving
Play • 59 min

The number of children diagnosed with ADHD has been steadily increasing. Now it is estimated that 1/10 children will be diagnosed with ADHD at some point.

Even though about half of these children receive some type of behavioral treatment, there has been a lack of studies around OT-specific support for ADHDer children. 

In this one hour OT CEU course, we will look at a study of an OT program for ADHD that features: 

  • Children setting their own goals
  • A focus on daily time management
  • Time-assisted devices  

This program led to significant improvement in performance and satisfaction! 

After we review the article, we’re excited to discuss this research with ADHDer and pediatric OT, Bryden Carlson-Giving, OTD, OTR/L. He and I will discuss the practical implications of this research for OTs.

In order to earn credit for this course, you must take the test within the OT Potential Club.
