Title: Providing Empirically-Supported Treatment for Organizational Skills Deficits in Children with ADHD

Presenter: Richard Gallagher, Ph.D. – Associate Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychiatry, NYU School of Medicine, The Child Study Center, NYU Langone Medical Center


Organization, Time Management, and Planning are hindered in ADHD.  Problems with these skills have an impact on school and adjustment in childhood, adolescence, and contribute to limited adult success as well.  For over 10 years, we have conducted a thorough program to understand OTMP deficits in ADHD.  Our extensive efforts supported by foundation and federal government grants have provided insights into the assessment and effective treatment of OTMP deficits.  We have a sound program that has been fully tested with elementary school age children and a promising program for middle school children. Additionally, we have used insights from this work to begin development of programs for high school and college students.  This presentation will review our systematic program of research and resulting assessment and intervention tools. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will understand the common deficits in organization, time management, and planning (OTMP) that have been found in children with ADHD.
  2. Participants will understand the options available for determining if a particular child falls into the 50-55% of children with ADHD that have impairing deficits in OTMP.
  3. Participants will know the foundation of a 20-session treatment program that has been empirically tested to improve organizational skills, academic performance, and family functioning.
  4. Participants will learn of the means of applying the intervention in their clinical setting and get ideas on how to adapt the intervention to school settings.
