Hybrid online course (35 h over 6 sessions)
Are you interested in learning an evidence-based intervention that improves daily functioning of young children with ADHD symptomatology?
The Parental Occupational Executive Training (POET; Frisch, Tirosh & Rosenblum, 2016) intervention focuses on supporting parents understand the nature of the Executive Functions (EF), how they affect their child's functioning and participation, and what parents can do to help their child become more successful in their day-to-day functioning. The POET intervention relates to all aspects of life, including managing morning and evening routines, managing reactions to frustration and excitement, initiating organized self-play indoors, sitting at meals, and doing homework. The POET intervention was developed at the University of Haifa, Israel, for children ages 4-7 years with executive delays. The intervention takes place over 8-10 sessions only, and is uniquely adjusted to be applied by parents who themselves cope with ADHD.
