The benefits of ADHD medication are well-documented: Children with ADHD are more likely to improve their focus and academic performance when receiving proper ADHD treatment. Effective treatment can also help boost a child’s self-esteem and enhance their ability to form long-lasting friendships.

Many parents can identify the most common medications used to treat ADHD, but they might be surprised to learn that more than 40 medications have been shown to effectively treat ADHD. How do you choose the best treatment option for your child, with all these options available? A healthcare provider who understands ADHD will recognize the unique characteristics of each medication and use that knowledge to recommend a treatment strategy tailored to your child’s specific needs. But even caregivers with the best treatment teams should understand their options.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Research into the efficacy of ADHD medication for treating the core symptoms of ADHD, including inattention, distractibility, hyperactivity, and impulsivity
  • Why there are so many medications available to treat ADHD and how they differ
  • How your child’s health care provider determines which medication may serve them best
  • ADHD medication side effects and how they can be mitigated
  • The findings of 20 years of research involving the effects of medication on the ADHD brain from childhood into adulthood

Meet the Expert Speaker:

Walt Karniski, M.D., is a developmental pediatrician, trained at Boston Children’s Hospital. He was director of the Division of Developmental Pediatrics at the University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida, for fifteen years. He then opened a private practice and for twenty years, evaluated and treated children with ADHD, autism, anxiety, learning disabilities, and other developmental difficulties. During that time, he developed and operated three private schools for children with ADHD, anxiety, and learning disabilities. Over the forty years he has been practicing, he has evaluated and treated close to ten thousand children, conducted numerous studies of brain activity in children, and has been director of a child abuse program and a program for enhancing development in children born prematurely. Dr. Karniski approaches each child as a unique individual, with distinctive strengths and weaknesses, where the diagnosis does not matter as much as understanding the specific needs of that child. His new book is ADHD Medication: Does It Work and Is It Safe? (#CommissionsEarned) (Roman & Littlefield, May 15, 2022).
