Program Description

Dr. Barkley will present a new theoretical model of ADHD that includes a more enriching, comprehensive, and dignifying view of the disorder than do most other clinical conceptualizations. This new model has important implications for the treatment and educational management of ADHD.

Dr. Barkley will also discuss clinical diagnostic criteria and adjustments that clinicians can use to make these criteria more developmentally sensitive. This will include the nature, developmental course, and adult outcomes of those with ADHD as well as contemporary findings on the etiology of the disorder.

After discussing the numerous popular yet unproven fads and disproven remedies often touted for treating ADHD, Dr. Barkley will describe in detail the most effective treatments, giving greatest emphasis to home and classroom management and the use of medications.
