About a quarter of people with ADHD also have an anxiety disorder, which is characterized by frequent, excessive fears and by panic attacks accompanied by dizziness, heart palpitations, or shortness of breath. At the same time, children with ADHD are 20 times more likely to exhibit some signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which include social delays, communication difficulties, and repetitive behaviors. When all three conditions overlap, parents need an intimate understanding of each diagnosis and some very fine-tuned strategies for managing treatment — and everyday life.

This webinar addresses…

> How to differentiate between symptoms

> How to help your child overcome social hurdles

> What behavioral strategies work best for children with multiple diagnoses

> What academic strategies can make a real difference at school and at home

> The best treatments and interventions based on your child’s unique profile

NEBA: NEBA is a brainwave test; the first cleared by FDA to help clinicians determine if symptoms are due to ADHD or some other condition. NEBA - along with a traditional diagnostic work up for ADHD - helps clinicians understand better what’s causing a child’s symptoms. NEBA may confirm ADHD or NEBA may prompt clinicians to look for other things that might be causing ADHD-like symptoms.
