Differential Diagnosis of ADHD in School-Aged Children

Friday, May 5, 2017, 9:15 A.M. -11:30 A.M.

Presenter: Susan Cohen, PhD, Director of the Marks Family Right from the Start Center and Director of Psychological Services, North Shore Child & Family Guidance Center

The goal of this two-hour workshop is to develop an understanding of a comprehensive diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, while considering other possible psychiatric, environmental and developmental disorders that affect children.

Workshop participants can expect to learn the symptoms of the different subtypes of ADHD; describe psychiatric diagnoses that can present with symptoms similar to those of ADHD such as:

  • Anxiety Disorders (e.g. PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder)
  • Affective Disorders (Bipolar Disorder)
  • Speech and language Disorder
  • Cognitive or Developmental delays

Participants will also learn which medical disorders mimic ADHD (e.g. seizures, sleep disorder); Learn about environmental factors that affect attention (e.g., lead); Understand the learning and psychiatric disorders that are frequently comorbid with ADHD, such as:

  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder
  • Conduct Disorder
  • Specific learning disabilities

And, participants will learn about appropriate diagnostic evaluations for detecting ADHD
