A note about this webinar: This webinar is part of a series designed for ADHD clinicians. Although all are welcome to view the replay, non-clinicians may want to notify the professionals with whom they work of this opportunity and share the audio and slide materials.

ADHD doesn’t travel alone. The vast majority of patients with ADHD also have a co-occurring condition like anxiety, depression, or a learning disability. Many times, these overlapping conditions require their own evaluation and unique treatment plan. Yet many doctors and clinicians assume that anxiety or depression are side effects of ADHD or they fail to perform ADHD assessments on patients already diagnosed with anxiety or depression. These failures lead to ineffective treatment plans and long-term health risks.
