Understanding Your Child’s ADHD and How It Relates to Developmental Disabilities

Saturday Speaker Series

Special Event

Presented by Juan Carlos Aguila, Ph.D., HRC Psychologist

The Saturday Speaker Series offers presentations that cover topics that are relevant to all of our families and service providers.  They are presented by HRC staff who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in their areas of expertise.  Presentations are scheduled on Saturday mornings for the convenience of families and service providers.  Participants will have the opportunity to view the presentation and ask questions. 

There are few topics that have received as much attention as ADHD in recent years and it is still not well understood.  The picture becomes even murkier when we consider developmental disabilities, especially Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  This presentation strives to provide a basic understanding of what is known about ADHD, how it is associated with developmental disabilities, and what treatment considerations are currently available.  The presentation itself will focus on attentional problems more so than issues related to hyperactivity because of their prevalence in developmental disorders and their pervasive ability to disrupt basic life functions.  Join us as we together explore the ADHD developmental disorder connection and what you can do about it. 

Currently, all offerings will be scheduled as Zoom meetings.
