This workshop will outline problems that occur when we solely rely on psycho-educational reports to develop learning profiles and individual education plans for students with ADHD. Psycho-educational testing, while helpful in ruling in or out specific learning disabilities, are not comprehensive or accurate when assessing for learning and self-regulation impairments caused by ADHD.
New CADDAC tools that have been developed to assist in the documentation of ADHD impairments in the education environment will be presented. In addition, this presentation will also summarize why psycho-educational testing can be a human rights violation and detrimental to a student with ADHD in the post-secondary setting.
