Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Waking the Sleeping Brain Boss
April 27, 2023; 6:00pm-8:00pm (2 Hours; $20.00)
Children can have attention problems for many reasons, but how does one know if it is Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and how best to treat it? In this community wide event, Dr. James B. Hale will present the latest ADHD research, including his own work on ADHD medication response. Reviewing that “true” ADHD is a “brain boss” problem, Dr. Hale will highlight how the problem with ADHD is executive control of attention, not basic attention. Stimulant medication, the most common treatment, works by waking up this “brain boss” to control the rest of the brain. By maximizing the cognition of a student with ADHD with medication, and using other interventions, including physical exercise, learning strategy instruction, social skills instruction, and behavior management, we can maximize both academic and behavioral outcomes for children with ADHD. Dr. Elizabeth Caron will provide her perspective on serving children with ADHD, and lead the Q&A discussion that follows the presentation.
