  • Medications used to treat ADHD
  • Common side effects of medications used for the treatment of ADHD

He has a special interest in ADHD and is engaged in clinical research with pharmacologic and alternative treatments for the disorder. Dr. Soper is the coordinator of the Edmonton ADHD Society, a group of physicians who focus on ADHD, the physician consultant to the ADHD Association of Greater Edmonton and the consulting psychiatrist to the CASA TIES Program; a six-month, school-based rehabilitative program for children with severe treatment-resistant mental illness.

 
*Where exactly is this classroom?
This space can be tricky to find – but don’t give up! As you enter the University of Alberta hospital at street level from the 112 street (East) entrance, look to the left for a set of double doors and an escalator/staircase. If you enter from the 114th Street (West) entrance, walk through the hospital all the way towards the 112 Street entrance and look to your right for the double doors and escalator/stairs.
Take the escalator/stairs to the second floor. Turn to your left and make a U-turn, proceeding along the hall (following the crosswalk style lines on the floor), across a small walkway that looks over the entrance below; this brings you into the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry space. Classroom D is on your left.
Signage with the ADHD Association of Greater Edmonton logo will be placed to help you find your way.
