ADHD in Developmental Disorders

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that occurs at high rates in people with autism and intellectual disability. It is often difficult to diagnose in the presence of co-morbidity and is often underdiagnosed but when identified and treated may reduce the likelihood of challenging behaviour and use of antipsychotic medication. This webinar reviews how ADHD may present in people with other developmental disorders and how to approach treatment and will address some of the specific issues for this population around assessment and management, with an emphasis on borderline personality disorder.
