ADHD in childhood: A contemporary approach

Event number: 18955
6.5 CPD hours
APS Institute CPD
Presenter(s): A/Prof Tim Hannan


Level of Learning: Introductory

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a persistent problem that frequently interferes with a child’s family, academic and social functioning and predisposes the child to behavioural, emotional and social problems in adult life. In recent years, advances in the neurobiology, psychology and genetics of ADHD have led to a fuller understanding of the disorder, with the emergence of new practices in its identification and management. This workshop summarises recent developments in research and practice in this field and explores the development and implementation of effective interventions for children with ADHD.

Learning Objectives:

This workshop is designed to help participants: 

•Understand the contemporary theoretical and empirical perspectives on ADHD

•Identify the debates and issues concerning contemporary diagnostic criteria, including proposed subtypes

•Define the core features and developmental progression of ADHD

•Understand contemporary neuropsychological models of ADHD

•Undertake a detailed assessment of children and adolescents suspected of having ADHD

•Critically evaluate the utility of specific measures for ADHD


•Design, implement and evaluate interventions for children and adolescents with ADHD
