ADHD Beyond Academics
Sheila Simchon, LSP, LCSW-QS
Description: Children with ADHD struggle beyond academics. Many kids with ADHD struggle to make interpersonal connections due to difficulty with emotional regulation, impulse control and general social skills. Years of bullying and failures result in developing psychological disorders like social anxiety, depression, and oppositional defiance. These challenges carry on into adulthood affecting one’s ability to develop and maintain healthy relationships and success in their career.
Learning objectives include:
- Overview of ADHD
- Addressing the types of social, emotional and psychological impact
- Support and resources for children and adults with ADHD
