Original Air Date May 26, 2021
Margaret H. Sibley PhD
While your child’s doctor usually asks the questions during an evaluation, you can participate too. In fact, asking the right questions can make a big difference in the way you manage your child’s ADHD. Before your visit, it’s a good idea to get a better understanding of ADHD before your appointment. In this webinar, Dr. Sibley provides parents with information that they should know before their visit. She discusses what parents should say to their child’s doctor and provides some questions that parents should ask during a visit.
