Imagine that you suffered from distressing and impairing psychological symptoms most of your life and no one told you that they were treatable. Older adults with unidentified ADHD have walked through life being disorganized, forgetful, worried about poor performance at work, and unable to maintain healthy relationships because they haven’t received an accurate diagnosis or an effective treatment plan.
ADHD is one of the most effectively treated psychiatric conditions in psychiatry, but only if it is accurately diagnosed. Here, David W. Goodman, M.D. — an internationally recognized expert in the treatment of ADHD with a specific interest in older adults — will explain the facts and latest research about diagnosing and treating ADHD in older adults, so you can lead a more fulfilling, productive, and happy life.
- Symptoms and daily impairments associated with ADHD in older adults
- Other medical issues to consider when explaining cognitive symptoms
- Which medications are helpful for older adults with ADHD
- The benefits ADHD medication may or may not provide

“This webinar was brilliant. I am a retired school psychologist with ADHD, diagnosed in my late 40’s. I currently coach adults with ADHD. Dr. Goodman’s presentation helped explain how to distinguish normal cognitive aging symptoms from ADHD related cognitive symptoms.”
“Terrific information about older adults with ADHD. The content, graphics, and statistics were complete and understandable.”
“I liked the focus on ADHD is not WHO you are, but something that you have.”
