The exact causes of ADHD are not yet known. ADHD is believed to be highly heritable —researchers have made strides in recent years identifying genes involved in the disorder — but it is also understood that ADHD may be influenced by non-inherited risk factors, such as trauma and stress. With scientific advances in the next decade or more, and perhaps with the aid of AI, we could see the diagnosis of many more subtypes of ADHD and new kinds of treatments involving novel therapies.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- About the current research involving genetic influences and environmental factors associated with ADHD
- How scientific discoveries could lead to the recognition of more than a dozen subtypes, and the implication of such findings
- How scientific advances may one day lead to the prevention of ADHD in utero or in the first two years of life
- About the future of promising therapies to retrain the brain to compensate for executive function weaknesses stemming from ADHD

Meet the Expert Speaker
Peter S. Jensen, M.D., founded the REACH Institute in 2006 to improve access to mental health care for children by training healthcare professionals in the diagnosis and treatment of common disorders. Previously, Dr. Jensen was an Associate Director of Child and Adolescent Research at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). He left NIMH and served as the founding director of the Center for the Advancement of Children’s Mental Health at Columbia University. While there, he developed the core methods REACH uses today to close the gap between science and practice. The strategy was to bring together leading scientists, mental health experts and agencies, primary care providers, parents, and schools to identify the best scientific findings available to help children. Then Dr. Jensen led REACH to implement, disseminate, and evaluate these methods.
The result was The REACH Institute’s first and most popular course, Patient-Centered Mental Health in Pediatric Primary Care. This course has trained more than 6,000 primary care providers to help children and teens with mental health issues.
