Free Webinar Replay: Learning Strategies for ADHD and Dyslexia
In this webinar, Roberto Olivardia, Ph.D., explains treatment interventions and academic accommodations that can help children with dyslexia. Learning strategies that work for reading challenges.
Almost half of people with ADHD also have a learning disability, and the most common among them is dyslexia. Oftentimes, diagnosing physicians miss the signs and symptoms of ADHD or dyslexia in a patient who has already been diagnosed with the other condition. Many times dyslexia is not identified because reading challenges are commonly attributed to ADHD. Knowing the genetic, biological, and neuropsychological similarities and differences between these two conditions is essential in assuring a proper assessment. If you suspect your child has dyslexia and ADHD, strategic treatment interventions and academic accommodations can turn things around.
In this webinar, you will learn all about:
- The key signs of and traits associated with dyslexia through various stages of development
- How to make a dual diagnosis of dyslexia and ADHD
- The similarities and differences between ADHD and dyslexia
- The social-emotional effects of having dyslexia and ADHD thoughts
- The importance of accurate assessment and the diagnostic label of dyslexia
- The most effective interventions and academic accommodations for dyslexia
