New course to provide an updated review of conventional & complementary ADHD treatments

Dear Sharp­Brains reader,

I hope you are doing well.

I am writ­ing to let you know about an upcom­ing online course on how to nav­i­gate ADHD treat­ments that I am devel­op­ing with Alvaro Fer­nan­dez, founder of the Sharp­Brains ser­vice track­ing applied brain sci­ence. The course will take place this May, and is intend­ed to equip par­ents and allied pro­fes­sion­als with the infor­ma­tion they need to under­stand the range of treat­ments avail­able for ADHD, the sci­en­tif­ic sup­port (and lim­i­ta­tions) for dif­fer­ent treat­ments, and how to think through the options for their child.

Alvaro and I will do our best to dis­till the treat­ment research lit­er­a­ture into a small num­ber of action­able ideas and strate­gies that par­ents can use. Our goal is to help par­tic­i­pants become tru­ly well informed about cur­rent ADHD treat­ment knowl­edge and how to obtain the best treatment(s) for their child.

To Learn More and Reg­is­ter, please vis­it the course page HERE. An ear­ly reg­is­tra­tion dis­count is avail­able until March 31st (addi­tion­al 10%-off dis­count code: sharp2015)

While I have not done any­thing like this before, I believe it can help bridge an impor­tant infor­ma­tion gap, and am look­ing for­ward to it. I hope many par­ents and oth­er inter­est­ed par­ties will be able to participate.

This is the course descrip­tion: Every par­ent whose child has been diag­nosed with ADHD should learn how to sys­tem­at­i­cal­ly nav­i­gate and mon­i­tor the range of poten­tial ADHD treat­ments based on the lat­est sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence. This course will pro­vide the nec­es­sary infor­ma­tion, frame­works and toolk­its to make well-informed deci­sions, in con­junc­tion with pro­fes­sion­al advice, about med­ica­tion, behav­ioral ther­a­py, exer­cise, neu­ro­feed­back, work­ing mem­o­ry train­ing, med­i­ta­tion, diet and supplements.
