ADHD is the most common neurobehavioral disorder of childhood, affecting over 6.4 million US school-aged children and an additional 2 million preschoolers. Left untreated, pediatric ADHD can have a significant effect on the well-being, academic achievement, emotional stability, and social interactions of children. The goal of this session is to equip mental health professionals with the tools necessary to overcome challenges within the treatment of ADHD in children; thereby helping to improve the accuracy of diagnosis, establish timely and informed strategies for behavior and pharmacotherapeutic treatment, deliver supportive and long-term patient/family care, and advance patient outcomes.
