Course Description

Why is it so difficult for students to pay attention these days? How does a therapist plan an effective session if the student is not able to pay effective attention? How do we support classroom teachers in their understanding of key areas of development needed in order to pay attention?

If these are some of the questions on your mind, then this workshop will be for you. Maude will cover the current trends and thinking around ADHD and the different components of ADHD. Assessment tools will be shared as well as multiple ideas about “what to do about it."

The workshop participant will leave the workshop equipped with practical ideas that will enhance the functions of their clients. Maude will also share her Executive Functioning Questionnaire used as an assessment tool. This workshop will provide the theory and the research, but it also will be practical in terms of providing accommodations as well as intervention for these troubled students.

Speaker

Maude Le Roux, OTR/L is an international speaker considering a wide array of topics pertaining development in children across the age spectrum. Even as she travels and trains extensively, she continues to operate a pediatric practice in Glen Mills, PA.

Maude designs her own courses, as well as trains for other organizations such as ICDL (DIR/Floortime) globally. Maude is a certified executive functioning coach (EFC) as well as a Certified ADHD Professional (ADHD-CCSP). She serves on the Board for ATTACh to develop the consideration of attachment and trauma in the work of occupational therapists.

Maude “re-energizes” as she teaches and inspires her listeners to feel the importance of the work they do. She co-authored a book, “Our Greatest Allies” with Lauren O’Malley, available on Amazon.com. Her mantra: ‘If a child could, he / she would!”

Disclosure: Maude Le Roux receives a speaking fee for her presentation and is owner of the clinic A Total Approach. She has no relevant non-financial relationships to disclose.

Thank you, Maude, for a very informative and thorough course on ADHD and Executive Functioning. My understanding of working memory, attention and executive functioning and their interdependence has improved by leaps and bounds. I have no doubt that all the professionals involved in the webinar will be enhancing greatly the quality of therapy their clients will be receiving.
