Today, 7-10% of children in the United States are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder with Hyperactivity and Impulsivity (ADHD). This diagnosis can impact a child’s ability to learn, develop friendships and healthy family relationships, and build positive self-esteem if left untreated. After 70 years of research, we now know effective treatment strategies, including behavioral, environmental, and psychopharmacological approaches.
In this webinar, we focus on evidence-based assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD, emphasizing behavioral and psychopharmacological strategies. Research has shown year after year that the combination of behavioral and psychopharmacology has been the most effective in reaching positive treatment outcomes. We also discuss and dispel myths surrounding ADHD and discuss the negative outcomes if a child is left untreated. We also explore how ADHD is often diagnosed along with other disorders, including learning disabilities, mood disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders, anxiety, and depression.
Through examining real-world scenarios that highlight the implications and outcomes of children diagnosed with ADHD, we gain a better understanding of how to assess, diagnosis, treat and evaluate outcomes for these children and their families. Finally, we share the importance of integrated care for these children and their families, including pediatricians and nurse practitioners, mental health specialists and psychiatrists, behavioral specialists, speech and occupational therapists, and educators.
