ADHD: Identification and Treatments
September 20th 4:30 to 6:00 pm
Quotient

QuotientADHD Test

ADHD has exploded in magnitude over the last decades and more children are being prescribed medication for this condition than ever before in history. The process of diagnosing ADHD requires many steps and gathering a lot of information from multiple sources, especially from families and teachers. Learn how to discern the key symptoms of ADHD at school and home; what type of tests are important to determine the cause of ADHD; how a neurological approach to ADHD impacts treatment options; the neurological and medical mimickers of ADHD; and the risks and benefits of many popular treatment interventions. This presentation also highlights the need to optimize or integrate behavioral and educational interventions prior to using medications.

 

Presented by: Greg Alberts, Ph.D.
