How ADHD Affects More Than Children

Most often, when people hear ADHD or Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, they think of a childhood condition. More recently, there is emerging research and evidence showing how ADHD can affect people into adulthood. This webinar focuses on how ADHD affects people in their adolescence and adulthood. ADHD can present itself differently in adults than it does in children, making it difficult to diagnose and treat. 

In this program, you can expect to learn about:

  1. Qualities and diagnostic characteristics with an emphasis on developmental considerations
  2. We will discuss genetic factors, neurological influences, and environmental factors in the context of differentiating between causal variables.
  3. Research on the prevalence of ADHD and comorbidity
  4. Development course and outcomes to highlight the uniqueness of ADHA during difference development periods
  5. Evidence-based treatment methods
