Over the last eight years, the 'ADHD Experts on Call' program has fielded tens of thousands of inquiries; helping people affected by ADHD better understand the condition and how to manage it. This program provides a resource for those who may not be familiar with ADHD, its signs and symptoms and how ADHD is diagnosed. It is also an opportunity to talk to an expert about tips and strategies for managing ADHD for someone who already has been diagnosed with the disorder.
While the experts participating in 'ADHD Experts on Call' cannot provide specific medical advice or recommend a particular course of action, they can provide helpful information about:
-- How to recognize ADHD symptoms in children, adolescents and adults;
-- How parents can approach teachers about their child's ADHD-related
-- Tips and strategies for how to manage ADHD throughout the day;
-- How to handle the impact of ADHD on family life, work performance and
-- The potential for ADHD to run in families;
-- Common myths and misconceptions about ADHD.
"It's never too late to be diagnosed with ADHD," said Dr. Manos. "'ADHD Experts on Call' doesn't replace a physician visit, but it can serve as a resource to educate people about ADHD symptoms, diagnosis, support groups and treatment options that can help them better understand the disorder."
