We are pleased to welcome Dr. Virginia Newton to our August meeting. Because there is no single test for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), an accurate diagnosis requires careful consideration of a number of different factors. This one-hour presentation will familiarize attendees with the process of assessing and diagnosing ADHD in adults. The advantages and disadvantages of various interventions will also be discussed.
Learn how ADHD presents differently across the lifespan
Understand how ADHD is diagnosed in adults
Learn to differentiate between ADHD and other conditions that may cause similar symptoms
Become familiar with treatment options
