ADHD: Diagnosis and Lifestyle Interventions, Oakwood School, Tuesday, 12. February 2019


Next in our "Understanding ADHD" Lecture Series is ADHD:  Diagnosis and Lifestyle Interventions, presented by Michelle Mullaley, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist and Co-founder of Bridges Therapy and Wellness Center in Fairfax, Virginia.  
ADHD is a common diagnosis, and it can be both over-diagnosed (or inaccurately diagnosed), and under-diagnosed in those who could benefit from intervention.  We will discuss any “red flags” that might suggest the presence of ADHD, and different pathways by which the diagnosis of ADHD can be made.  We will then focus on positive lifestyle interventions that can be incorporated into everyday life to maximize brain functioning and support individuals with ADHD. 
We will discuss:

Environmental factors (home, school and work) that can impact daily functioning
Nutritional factors that impact alertness and concentration, and suggestions for foods that best support the ADHD brain
Strategies to improve emotional awareness (and reactivity)
Exercise and the impact on focus, self-regulation and work production
Importance of stress management
