Melt down – it can seem to come out of nowhere. It’s one of the challenging or explosive behaviours we can see in our ADHD spouse, child, sibling, self or friend. Sometimes behaviours are shown as as poor self-esteem, yelling, rage or tears. Behaviours may also be very subtle and go unnoticed or worse still, diagnosed and treated as something else, such as anxiety disorder or depression.
The Connect ADHD Volcano model has been developed to explain and understand these challenging and explosive and sometimes hidden behaviours. It is a key educational piece that clearly represents the relationship between observable behaviours, diagnosis and the underlying factors of executive function skills development, and how brain chemistry impacts all of the above.
This webinar clarifies these underlying challenging or explosive behaviours. We talk through “What are the core symptoms ” and how these fit in with Executive functions.
– Understand the role of executive functions in behaviours in people with ADHD
– Discuss the role of not only medication, but other factors impacting brain chemistry.
