ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) is one of the most prevalent disorders diagnosed in children. While there are many different approaches to treating children with ADHD, directive play therapy interventions help to remediate the skills deficits such as short attention span, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.

  • Improve impulse control 
  • Increase attention and focus
  • Slow down the mind and body
  • Identify constructive ways to use energy
  • Utilize strategies to shift from one activity to the next 
  • Increase pro-social behaviour
  • Improve academic performance for in-person and online school 
  • Interventions will also be presented for use by parents and teachers to increase positive behaviour at home and school. 

The presenter will discuss ways to optimize online therapy sessions for children with ADHD.
