You’ve worked with that child, the one who throws blood-curdling tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. He’s defiant and hostile towards authority, refuses to do anything until his 3 why questions are answered. Staying focused and on-task is extremely difficult for him with his hyperactive behavior disrupting those around him. He’s bossy to his peers, making the rules up himself, and getting upset if they are not followed explicitly. As adults, we feel manipulated and controlled by this child as he pushes to do things his way. And frequently, he does not respond to interventions and consequences that work for most children and adolescents. Attend this seminar and discover temperament traits that put a child at risk for a diagnosis of ODD; are found with ADHD; and are linked to an increased risk of anxiety disorders. Walk away with proven strategies for treating temperament including; recognizing the red flag temperament traits found in ODD, ADHD and anxiety, developing skills for executive functioning and cognitive processing, preventing meltdowns and oppositional behavior, decreasing problems with temperament traits that affect ADHD, reducing the risk of unneeded medication, and much more!
