Training Title:
ADHD: A Controversial Subject

Clock Hours: 1.5

After completing this course, participants should be able to: • List the criteria that must be met for a person to be appropriately diagnosed with ADHD • Identify at least two key aspects of an assessment for ADHD that might improve consistency and accuracy of diagnosis. • Identify the most common traditional treatments used with people diagnosed with ADHD • Define the short-term and long-term findings of the MTA study

In considering how best to address ADHD in children as a provider, you will likely run into considerable controversy. This course will review some of the long standing issues that surround the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD. Examples of these issues include how thoroughly and consistently children and their parents are evaluated against the DSM IV criteria for ADHD and the tendency to prescribe medication as the first line of treatment. We will look briefly at the results of the NIMH Multimodal Treatment Study of Children with ADHD (MTA), one of the largest and longest term evaluations of the effect of treatment on children with ADHD, and consider the implications of its findings. Keywords: ADHD, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Attention Deficit, hyperactivity, impulsivity, assessment, diagnosis, DSM, PI, performance improvement, behavioral intervention, medication strengths-based, Genie Skypek
