CHADD Webinar: 4 Common Problems in ADHD Treatment for Teens and Adults

Featuring Thomas E. Brown, PhD

June 11, 2 PM ET

Are you feeling frustrated that you don’t have immediate results from your ADHD treatment plan? It could be a matter of taking more time, or it could be time for another approach.

Some teens and adults aren’t sure what to do when improvements they expect from their treatment for ADHD haven’t happened as soon as they want. Should they continue with what they’re doing or change their treatment plans? In this webinar Dr. Thomas Brown will discuss four problems that may interfere with successful treatment for teens and adults with ADHD:

  • Lack of a clear understanding of the many ways ADHD can impact daily life
  • Inadequate “fine tuning” of medication for ADHD
  • Ignoring problematic co-occurring disorders
  • Insufficient interpersonal support

Dr. Brown will describe ways to address these common problems to improve effectiveness of treatment for teens and adults with ADHD.
