Originally thought to be a disorder in young boys, scientific research has proven it exists equally in both genders, and is present throughout the life-span 67% of the time. With what we know now in science, it’s time to get the truth and facts out. The World Federation of ADHD, of which Dr. Faraone is current President, has published the International Consensus of 208 Conclusions about ADHD, its challenges and misunderstandings. Federation Members from around the world curated these findings with a strong evidence base. The empirically supported statements are approved by 80 authors from 27 countries on 6 continents, and also endorsed by 366 people who have read and agree with its content. We’ll be reviewing major findings from this collaboration. Join us as we learn the facts about ADHD, in children and adults, around the world. SEGMENT 2: FORGETFUL AND DISORGANIZED? OLD AGE OR ADHD? Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is commonly associated with children who are inattentive, distractible, impulsive, and fidgety. However, ADHD persists for many children into adulthood and older age. Unfortunately few clinicians are aware of this lifelong disorder and easily discount memory and attention decline to getting older. ADHD in older adults occurs in approximately 3% of the population. Because they were likely not diagnosed earlier in life, troublesome symptoms may likely be attributed to old age rather than the underlying, lifelong, undiagnosed condition of ADHD. How and when to seek medical advice is discussed.

SOFIA sends reminders and educational messages about your child’s medication and treatment, how to handle daily activities, school, family relationships, and ADHD in general. A customized personal experience, SOFIA sends reminders and educational messages about your child’s medication and treatment, how to handle daily activities, school, family relationships, and ADHD in general. ADHD is a prevalent condition, affecting at least 10% of children and 5% of adults. If untreated, it is associated with a wide range of adverse outcomes including depression, bipolar disorder, addictions, criminality, car crashes, and traumatic brain injury, among many others. Despite strong evidence that medication treatment for ADHD is safe and effective and mitigates many of these very serious outcomes, adherence to treatment is extremely poor. We developed an APP based on text messaging called SOFIA (Simple Online Family Intervention Intervention for ADHD). It not only improves adherence, but also educates and supports patients and families with ADHD Visit https://mysofia.online/ VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
