Dr. Mikami’s presentation will be on the nature of social difficulties often experienced by children and adolescents with ADHD.  She will discuss the current state of the research literature on strategies for improving social functioning.  Dr. Antshel’s presentation will be on the assessment and treatment (nonpharmacologic) of ADHD in adulthood with a focus on ADHD experienced by college students.

 

The afternoon will consist of presentations on a range of topics pertinent to the nature and treatment of ADHD experienced by children and adults.  Afternoon sessions are selected to allow a more in-depth presentation of specific topics appropriate for professionals or lay audiences.
