Course Description:

In your practice, you will find clients/patients with an ADHD diagnosis who prefer not to take medication. There are various reasons for this – and in this seminar you will learn these reasons, and you will discover what other treatment options are available. The more you know the “whys” of your client’s choice of treatment, the better quality of care you can provide them. Medications available for treating ADHD, including the benefits and side effects will be discussed. You will learn the myths surrounding medication, and how to help your client/patient make the most informed choice about their treatment.

Not only will you walk away with the most common non-medication treatments for ADHD in this seminar, you will also know the safety and efficacy of each treatment. This information is very valuable when considering referring a client/patient for ADHD treatment. You will also learn how much these treatments cost, and if the possible benefits outweigh the financial impact on the client/patient.

The use of nutraceuticals/supplements will be discussed – both how they can impact the central nervous system and why it is important to find a producer with good quality assurance. Diet can make a difference in treating ADHD – but not in the way you might think. You will leave with more knowledge about the research purporting a link between pesticides and ADHD.

Objectives:
  1. Recognize the benefits and drawbacks of non-medication treatments for ADHD versus medication treatment.
  2. Determine the most common non-medication treatments for ADHD.
  3. Identify the reasons why many patients/clients request non-medication treatments.
  4. Relate the safety and efficacy of non-medication treatments for ADHD.
  5. Determine whether the benefits of alternative treatments outweigh the costs to the patient/client.
  6. Discuss how nutraceuticals/supplements and diet may or may not influence symptoms of ADHD.
