1105.00$ USD

Are you interested in learning an evidence-based intervention that improves daily
functioning of young children with ADHD symptomatology?
The Parental Occupational Executive Training (POET; Frisch, Tirosh & Rosenblum, 2016) intervention
focuses on supporting parents understand the nature of the Executive Functions (EF), how they affect
their child’s functioning and participation, and what parents can do to help their child become more
successful in their day-to-day functioning. The POET intervention relates to all aspects of life, including
managing morning and evening routines, managing reactions to frustration and excitement, initiating
organized self-play indoors, sitting at meals, and doing homework. The POET intervention was
developed at the University of Haifa, Israel, for children ages 4-7 years with executive delays. The
intervention takes place over 8-10 sessions only, and is uniquely adjusted to be applied by parents who
themselves cope with ADHD.
