This workshop explores increasing attention spans and encouraging compliance with adult-directed activities in very young children that exhibit behaviors commonly associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Participants will learn specific intervention strategies, as well as the correlation between attention difficulties and lower brain development in children ages birth to 36 months, and how to differentiate between age appropriate and problematic activity levels.
