Is It Just ADHD? Understanding the Adopted Child's Behavior

Adopted children are at increased risk of attention challenges. Join Dr. Elaine Schulte of The Children's Hospital at Montefiore as we explore ADHD symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment—including a discussion of stimulant medications and evidence-based therapies for managing attention challenges. We also explore coexisting conditions such as anxiety, depression, and learning disorders. Learn how other diagnoses—such as PTSD, RAD, and conduct disorders—can mimic attention challenges. This workshop is designed for both professionals and parents.
