Task Team Application: Brain- Based Conditions

Introduction and Instructions


For each new Specialist Certificate Program, NAPO Education develops new and unique core classes. We are seeking Task Team Members for the upcoming Brain-Based Conditions (BBC) Specialist Certificate. The Brain-Based Conditions Specialist Certificate is designed to help professional organizers and productivity consultants develop foundational knowledge for working with clients experiencing symptoms or having diagnoses under the umbrella of Brain-Based Conditions.

Task Team Members are volunteer Subject-Matter Experts (SME) who serve on three-person teams to support the instructors who are developing courses for NAPO, including creating learning objectives and reviewing the final product before it gets recorded. The commitment is approximately 10 hours, and you will earn CEU credits for the class. 

You will not be responsible for developing the course content, but you will be reviewing course content for accuracy. You must have subject-matter expertise in whichever course topic(s) you choose. 

Please note: You may serve on more than one task team (time permitting) at a time. 

We Still Need Task Team Members (Content Reviewers) for the Following Courses:

  • Procedures & Policies for Organizing & Productivity Professionals Who Work with Clients Living with Brain-Based Conditions - Ethics and ethical choices, best ethical practices and responsibilities for POs/PCs regarding boundaries, red flags, safety, and confidentiality. Intro to mental health professionals and their roles and services; referrals to whom. The importance of BBC education for POs/PCs. Standard P&Ps to integrate into PO/PCs business. 
  • Communicating with Clients about Overwhelm and Behavioral Challenges - What to do when the client is overwhelmed and doesn't know why (has not been diagnosed), what if we suspect a brain-based condition is in play, how to deal with what the client is telling you with appropriate boundaries, how to discuss, encouraging sharing of challenges with other support team members and or educate themselves. How to communicate in a de-stigmatizing way with clients.
  • Workplace Challenges for Clients with ADHD and Other Brain-Based Conditions: ADHD is often a 'hidden' disability and Executive Function challenges are easily disguised as moral failings. Despite intelligence, ability and motivation, these problems can be insidious - manifesting in many ways that negatively impact workplace performance and job satisfaction. 
  • Working with Adult Dependents and Students with Brain-Based Conditions: Focusing on ways to assist college-age clients or adult dependents who have a brain-based condition.
