           Assessment of ADHD in Adults   

Presented by: Dr. Saeid Chavoshi and Angela Celebre, MA

There has been an increasing interest in the diagnosis and treatment of adult ADHD. Join us to review the best practices for approaching the assessment of ADHD in adults. We will review standardized processes such as screening, standard battery (including our rationale for selecting certain measures), diagnostic considerations, and complex cases. Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive overview of adult ADHD assessments and help you prepare a roadmap to take the necessary learning and supervision steps to provide this service to your clients.
