(Wednesday) September 13, 2023, 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. CDT  Click here to register.


ADHD is among the most common reasons for mental health referrals among school-aged children. Although ADHD is typically first diagnosed in early childhood, the core symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity generally persist into adulthood, often waxing and waning over time. Similarly, the common academic, behavioral, and social difficulties experienced by many individuals with ADHD change over time as the individual develops and moves through different environments (e.g., grade-level transitions). This webinar will: (a) provide an overview of ADHD symptomology and functional impairment over time, (b) review current standards for the diagnosis and subsequent monitoring of ADHD, and (c) review the Life Course Model of ADHD and its implications for assessment and subsequent treatment of ADHD.


Dr. Matthew Gormley, PhD, LP is an Associate Professor of School Psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He received his doctorate in school psychology from Lehigh University. His research focuses on students at-risk for, or diagnosed with, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dr. Gormley has conducted research on how conjoint behavioral consultation can be utilized to help students with ADHD transition across grade levels.
