Featuring Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D., The World’s Leading Expert on ADHD

  • Internationally-acclaimed trainer with 30 years of research and clinical experience
  • Author of Taking Charge of ADHD: The Complete Authoritative Guide for Parents and 15 other books and over 250 scientific articles on ADHD
  • Sought after media expert: The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Early Show, Nightline, the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsweek, Time and many others
  • Recipient of numerous national awards for his work in ADHD

This is a rare opportunity to learn from the world’s leading expert on ADHD. This program will provide detailed, current information on the nature and causes of ADHD in children and teens and the role of executive functioning in the disorder. A neuropsychological theory of executive functioning (EF) and self-regulation will be presented that provides a much more comprehensive view of both EF and of ADHD than the current clinical conceptualization of ADHD as a disorder of attention.

New research exists on the life course of children with ADHD and their adult outcomes that illustrates how impaired EF can negatively impact major life activities. The results of that research have numerous implications for the management of ADHD. Dr. Barkley will discuss the advances in our scientific knowledge of ADHD and their exciting implications for optimizing the effective treatment of children and teens having ADHD. He will also discuss the science-based treatments for the management of ADHD, its executive functioning deficits, and the impairments likely to arise from the disorder.
