Event Details

     The decision to provide medication for a child is one of the most emotional and challenging decisions confronting a parent of a child diagnosed with ADHD.  This decision is often further complicated by sensationalist media coverage that often portrays a biased view of the prevailing research and clinical practice.  Dr. Alan Wachtel, Executive Director of Family Health Associates based in New York City and White Plains, brings several years of clinical and research experience in examining this complicated decision.  Dr. Wachtel will discuss the various medical options that exist for children with ADHD and associated disorders, and will present an insightful discussion of the factors that can assist a parent in making this decision.  By exploring the current scientific research that now spans over 50 years, and by sharing clinical examples, Dr. Wachtel will help parents to develop a reasoned understanding of the different facets of the medication decision.
