Presented By:

Referrals of adults for ADHD assessment are common.  However, differential diagnosis is important to select the correct treatment.  This workshop will discuss screening measures and when to refer adults for further assessment.  Emphasis will be placed on collection of historical information through interviews with patients and informants, record reviews and rating scales. Individual and gender differences will be covered, although research is lacking.  Common rule-out diagnoses will be discussed, and a brief neuropsychological screening will be presented.

Learning Objectives:
After the webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Recognize key historical factors that can help diagnose or rule out ADHD in adults.
2. Apply interviews and rating scales when screening adults for ADHD.
3. Discuss how individual and gender differences affect diagnosis of ADHD and the lack of research in this area overall.
4. Understand common rule-out diagnoses. 

Target Audience: Neuropsychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Clinical Social Workers, Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Primary Care Physicians, Psychiatric and Neurological Nurse Practitioners.
