African Americans and other individuals of color are less likely to get an accurate ADHD diagnosis and proper treatment. Why? Stigma, myths, and misconceptions about ADHD, historical mistrust of the medical community, and a shortage of clinicians of color who are knowledgeable about ADHD all contribute to proper care and treatment challenges.

Education and outreach are important ways community members, clinicians, educators, and other allies can help improve outcomes for individuals with ADHD in BIPOC communities.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • About the factors that hamper proper ADHD diagnosis and treatment in communities of color
  • About the historical context for the persistent ADHD myths and misconceptions that contribute to stigma and stereotypes in these communities
  • How educators and clinicians can overcome ethnic and cultural barriers to ADHD care
  • About practical strategies for improving outcomes for individuals with ADHD in communities of color
