ADHD frequently co-occurs with language impairment. Speech and language patterns vary in children with ADHD, but the speech-language pathologist (SLP) can be an important member of the team that helps a child with ADHD maximize his potential and succeed in school and at home. In this workshop, speech-language pathologist Rachel Cortese MS, CCC-SLP, of the Child Mind Institute will discuss the connection between ADHD and speech and language. You’ll also learn about the assessments done by the SLP when a team of professionals diagnoses the disorder, and some of the speech and language treatments available for people with ADHD.
