ADHD & Dyslexia
December 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm MSTCAD$ 10
EXPERT: Dr. Cheryl Chase Ph.D.
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Dyslexia are separate conditions that often occur together in the same person. In fact, it is estimated that about 50-60% of people with ADHD will also have a learning disorder, the most common of which is Dyslexia. ADHD is characterized by inattention, distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability characterized by difficulties with accurate and fluent word recognition, spelling, and reading decoding. Although the two share some common traits, they are distinctly different. Proper assessment to identify both conditions is critical. In this program, we will discuss both these diagnoses, the symptoms they both may have in common, and the ways in which they differ. We will also discuss treatment implications if both conditions are present.
Objectives of this webinar include:
- Describing the key signs/traits of ADHD and Dyslexia
- Identifying the differences between ADHD and Dyslexia
- Highlight the ways in which children with both conditions will differ from those with just one or the other
- Identifying key treatment strategies for children with co-occurring ADHD and Dyslexia
