The Modern Management of ADHD
We will review updated information on the prevalence, diagnosis, nature, and etiology of ADHD, emphasizing strong modern interest in executive dysfunction in its many forms. There will be a brief review of medication management, but the major management emphasis will be on assisting those with ADHD and those in their support system with the scaffolding necessary to ameliorate symptoms. We will discuss changes in support needs through the developmental process and close by highlighting the role technology may play in the future. We will also address such age-old aids to ADHD symptom relief as sleep and exercise.
