Clinicians and parents are increasingly recognizing the inequities in ADHD care for Black and Latinx children. Children of color inadequately treated for ADHD face serious consequences at school and experience long-term negative impacts on health and well-being. Expert Dr. Tumaini Coker will address these diagnostic and treatment disparities, the negative impact of these inequities, and how the medical community can adapt Parent Behavioral Training programs to help meet the needs of these families and achieve equity in ADHD care.
In this webinar, you will learn how to:
- Recognize and assess disparities in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD for black and Latinx children
- Evaluate how these disparities, compounded with structural racism, can affect the health and long-term well-being of these children
- Explore ways to reduce these disparities in care
