Many participants have been diagnosed with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), yet this diagnosis is not necessary for participation in the program.  The treatment will be delivered in 1-hour weekly small group sessions for 16 weeks. OST utilizes behavioral skills training to improve children’s organizational skills in the school and home, including tracking assignments, managing materials, time management, and task planning. The program works with parents and the student’s teachers to deliver a holistic program to help in both school and the home.

Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment for Adult ADHD

The Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment Program for Adults with ADHD is an evidence-based intervention that fosters the development of executive self-management skills in adults.

Cognitive-behavioral principles are employed to provide contingent self-reward, break down complex tasks into management parts, and sustain motivation toward long-term goals. The treatment has been shown to produce significant benefits to adults with ADHD related to problems of time management, organization, and planning.
