Some people think that a diagnosis of inattentive ADHD (formerly known as ADD) means not being able to pay attention to anything. Wrong! Everyone can pay attention to at least a few activities or tasks that really interest them — like playing a sport they enjoy or playing favorite video games. Inattentive type ADHD actually means not being able to focus and sustain attention adequately on important non-preferred tasks, like schoolwork or assignments at work.
This webinar will explain how inattentive type ADHD is diagnosed and how to effectively treat it. It will also correct common misunderstandings about medications for ADHD and why they need to be “fine-tuned” to be effective.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Why inattentive ADHD symptoms usually last longer in adulthood than does hyperactivity
- Why IQ has nothing to do with inattentive ADHD
- Why inattentive symptoms may not be noticed until adolescence
- Why some middle-aged women develop inattentive ADHD
- How inattentive can be effectively diagnosed
- How medications work in the brain to help improve ADHD symptoms
- Why medications for ADHD need to be carefully “fine-tuned”
