Understanding and Diagnosing Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Late Adolescents and Adults
This workshop is designed for individuals with intermediate-advanced testing skills who regularly use formal psychological assessment tools (e.g., cognitive and academic measures, continuous performance tasks, mood/personality measures). The workshop will briefly define ADHD according to current accepted standards, explore how the disorder presents itself in late adolescents and adults, and review appropriate assessment batteries according to the presenting question. The workshop will also offer opportunities to practice interpreting assessments and differential diagnosis.
