Challenging behaviors such as aggression, emotional outbursts, and difficulties tolerating activities typically lead to the request for a functional behavior assessment and subsequent behavior intervention plan — a “roadmap” for teaching your child new, appropriate behaviors and skills. It’s important to note that the language used in those plans can affect how teachers and school professionals work with your child. Unfortunately, many behavior plans use negative language to describe student behaviors.

In this webinar, parents will learn about:The federal requirements regarding effective behavior programming
What you should look for and expect from a functional behavior assessment (FBA) and a behavior intervention plan (BIP)
The importance of specific, objective language as a foundation for your child’s behavioral programs
Strategies for advocating for objective, rather than subjective, language
The expert Q&A webinar When Behavior Impedes Learning: A Parents’ Guide to Advocating Objectively and Effectively at School will take place Thursday, July 23, 2020, from 1pm-2pm ET (12pm-1pm CT; 11am-12pm MT; 10am-11am PT).

One of the most difficult — and under-appreciated — challenges of ADHD is managing the intense emotions and moods that hijack our everyday lives. Emotional dysregulation is cited by many patients as a formidable problem, yet emotional instability isn’t even listed as a core symptom of ADHD in the DSM-5. The good news is that there are effective treatments that address emotional control problems head-on.

In this webinar, you will learn about:Recent research studying the role of emotion in managing ADHD
The latest science explaining how anger problems fit into the core ADHD syndrome
How clinicians can determine if uncontrolled anger stems from ADHD or another condition
The most effective treatments for managing emotional dysregulation
The expert Q&A webinar “You’re So Emotional!” Why ADHD Brains Wrestle with Emotional Regulation will take place Tuesday, July 28, 2020, from 1pm-2pm ET (12pm-1pm CT; 11am-12pm MT; 10am-11am PT).
