ADHD, Dyslexia and IM Training

Question:

Are there any specific strategies for using IM with individuals who have ADHD or Dyslexia?

…and additionally, is there any research looking into the efficacy of completing IM while off ADHD medications?

Answer:

Over the years, we have recorded several webinar presentations from IM Providers who are achieving successful outcomes with these and other conditions commonly seen in the pediatric/school-age population. These recordings are available on-demand for ASHA & AOTA CEUs, so you can take them at your convenience. Here are some titles that may interest you:

Additionally, to the second question…to date, there have been no studies comparing the effect of IM training while on versus off ADHD medications.  It is best to consult with your client, his family, and their physician prior to making any decisions changing or stopping medications.
