Teen Driving Rules: ADHD Guardrails to Avoid Distractions and Accidents

May 18, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT

FREE

EXPERT: Annie Artiga Garner, Ph.D.

Inexperienced teen drivers with ADHD face an outsized risk for serious motor vehicle accidents due to attention deficits, impulsivity, and other ADHD-related challenges. Understanding the factors that contribute to elevated driving risk, as well as strategies and training plans that can mitigate these risks, is critical for caregivers and teen drivers.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Research that documents the driving risks associated with ADHD
  • Factors that contribute to this risk, including one key mechanism: visual inattention
  • Factors that lessen the risk of accidents, including environmental changes in the driving environment, pharmacological intervention (i.e., stimulant medication), and a new training program targeting visual inattention, enhanced FOcused Concentration and Attention Learning (FOCAL+)
  • Practical tips for navigating driving as a developmental milestone with your neurodivergent teen
