Dr. Jill Wise recently recorded a webinar entitled, Pediatric Neuropsychology: An Introduction to the Basics of Neuropsychological Evaluations. This webinar outlines the role of a pediatric neuropsychologist, identifies common referral questions for evaluation, and describes the neuropsychological evaluation process with the use of case studies.
Dr. Julie Steck recently recorded a webinar on entitled, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Females: Underdiagnosed and Misunderstood. Over the past 30 years there has been prolific research in the area of ADHD and we know a great deal about this condition. Despite the available research, many parents, teachers and other professionals are uninformed about ADHD and the significant risk factors for those with ADHD when they are not appropriately diagnosed and treated. While the incidence of ADHD in females is less than that in males, females are also less likely to be diagnosed with ADHD if they have the condition. Multiple research studies have shown that that females with ADHD have higher rates of depression and dysthymia, anxiety, cigarette smoking, substance use, academic difficulties, impairment in driving, eating disorders and relationship difficulties than their non-ADHD peers. This presentation will include an overview on the research on females with ADHD, signs and symptoms of ADHD in females, treatment approaches and therapeutic interventions. The overall goal of the presentation will be to bridge research to practice and parenting.
