The presentation will focus on the ways in which common co-morbid disorders can alter the appearance of learning and attention disorders, and can mimic
them. The discussion includes a practical approach to diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD), anxiety disorders, and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).
