The rate of ADHD diagnoses continue to increase as does the exposure in the media. Parent websites, new articles, specials on Netflix and even humor on Southpark question if it is over-diagnosed and if too many youth are on medications. Is this true? Are smart phones creating a new normal of an ADHD society? Do stimulants put my child at risk for substance use?
The goal of this lecture is to clear the fog on ADHD and provide a thorough review of this medical condition. The two hour session will focus on reviewing the science behind the diagnosis, clarifying the differential, explaining the various modalities of treatment and exploring outcomes over the lifespan. Finally throughout the lectures numerous commonly held beliefs regarding ADHD will be demystified.
· Clarify the science behind ADHD.
· Understand the differential for a child with attention or hyperactivity concerns.
· Understand the various modalities of treatment including both pharmacological and behavioral
· Demystify commonly held beliefs about ADHD
· Explore common trajectories throughout the lifespan
