Treating Adolescents With ADHD
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
In Treating Adolescents With ADHD, Dr. Robert J. Resnick demonstrates his approach to helping adolescents and their families deal with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a common diagnosis whose symptoms include impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention. Dr. Resnick works with both the parents and the child with ADHD, first to evaluate the environment in which the adolescent lives and then to find ways to make that environment more "ADHD-friendly."
In this session, Dr. Resnick counsels a 13-year-old boy and his mother on options for reducing distractions, advocating for accommodations in school, and working with doctors on medication dosage.
