    WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

    This workshop will teach participants how to complete or review assessments of older adolescents and adults with learning disabilities (LDs) and ADHD from an evidence-based perspective. Topics will include research on LDs and ADHD, emphasizing research related to assessment; components of a cognitively-based assessment, including performance and symptom validity assessment; briefer assessments when time is a factor; disability documentation based on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the associated 2008 ADA Amendments Act, and 2015 Department of Justice recommendations; reasonable accommodations; and interventions/treatment. The workshop will conclude with one or more case examples.
