ADHD is routinely under-diagnosed in African-American children due to myriad factors, including structural inequalities in medical care and schools across the U.S. But even when ADHD is diagnosed in African-American children, it often goes untreated due to the cultural misconceptions and stigma about the disorder — and a deep distrust of the medical community — by people of color.

When ADHD is untreated in children, the risk for poor outcomes in academic and social settings increases. This is why proper diagnosis and treatment is critical for children of color. It is imperative that clinicians understand the cultural differences regarding how ADHD is perceived by Black and minority families, and use effective practices that influence appropriate treatment responses and behaviors. It is equally important that minority families understand why the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in children is so important — and how it is tied to a child’s success.

In this webinar, clinicians, educators, and caregivers will learn:

  • Why the stigma and cultural misconceptions around ADHD impede proper treatment by families of color
  • How to bust common ADHD myths and get to the root of the problem
  • About strategies to assess and treat ADHD that align with cultural beliefs and values of minority families
  • How clinicians, educators, and caregivers can apply evidence-based practices to a clinical, educational, and home environment
