According to several long term, multi-institute, large population research studies, the most effective management of AD/HD remains combined intensive behavioural management and medications.
While medications can be very useful in alleviating inattentiveness and impulsivity in school and at home, as well as providing a window to allow children and teens to work on his or her areas of weakness, parents are often concerned about the side effects and frustrated by the confusing information about the choice of medications.
In this roundtable talk, Dr. Lam will explain the indications for recommending medication, potential side effects, and effective management. She will also discuss the possible choices of medication in an evidence-based approach, based on the child’s educational needs and potential comorbidities.
This Roundtable is appropriate for parents of school children, teenagers, and adolescents. Educators, other professionals, and doctors are welcome.
This is a great chance to hear from a respected professional, share your own experiences with other parents and/or professionals, talk about support strategies, and explore your personal questions in greater depth.
