I seek to understand this refocus to a strength-based approach and apply it to social skills intervention. I am interested in how this perspective fits into the biosocial identity of individuals with ADHD, what epistemologies and evidence for targeting skills underlie current approaches to social skills interventions for individuals with ADHD, and how a strength-based approach is being understood and supported in this new domain.
My research seeks to identify positive personality factors associated with social skills in children with ADHD and target the deficit specification in social skills interventions. I will also explore the complexities of strength-based interventions in social skills specifically in children with ADHD.
