Dear col­leagues and friends,

?We are pleased to announce an excit­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion between Sharp­Brains and the Atten­tion Research Update to offer a new online course in May 2015, designed to equip par­tic­i­pants with the under­stand­ing and infor­ma­tion required to nav­i­gate and pri­or­i­tize ADHD treatments–both con­ven­tion­al and complementary–to max­i­mize healthy brain devel­op­ment for chil­dren with ADHD.

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.

Who this is for: This new course can be a valu­able resource for par­ents whose child has been diag­nosed with ADHD and also for pro­fes­sion­als seek­ing to stay updat­ed.
