This intermediate workshop presents evidence-based and innovative treatment methods for treating ADHD and executive-function deficits of clients of all ages, with emphasis on promoting dignity and autonomy in the client. A literature review of the most effective nonmedication-based methods for improving ADHD symptoms will be presented. Participants will learn practice interventions, including ADHD coaching and goal setting techniques, CBT skills, college planning and career development. Innovative technologies for ADHD treatment will also be discussed and demonstrated.

Learning Objectives
1. Summarize the relative degree of empirical support for the various nonmedication treatments for adult ADHD that are reviewed and identify the types of functional impairments and problems targeted by each of the nonmedication treatments for adult ADHD.
2. Demonstrate ADHD coaching and goal-setting techniques that can be used independently or to help strengthen and supplement more traditional therapeutic frameworks when working with adolescents and adults.
3. Summarize key unique considerations in selecting and designing interventions for children and adolescents with ADHD and share practical and effective nonmedication strategies to assist professionals in collaborating effectively with schools and supporting families.
4. Describe and compare emerging mobile technologies that may be useful adjuncts to existing nonmedical ADHD treatments.
5. Explain how untreated ADHD leads to certain negative mindsets and demonstrate how CBT can counter these negative mindsets.
6. Define the differences between how adults can enable teens with ADHD/LD to be dependent versus respond in ways that promote independence and self-determination.
7. Assess the differences between high school and college and what the common transition challenges are for teens with ADHD/LD.
