If you were recently diagnosed with ADHD as an adult, I invite you to listen to this webinar. I was asked to speak online LIVE for the Children and Adults with ADHD Association (CHADD) Webinar Series “Ask the Expert”. I discussed the benefits of ADHD treatment as they unfold over the first 6 months of treatment. If effectively treated with the sequence of medication and psychotherapy, there is a predictable pattern of improvement that can be expected. Understanding this pattern will help you discover what gets better and when. Patients and families are often amazed that I can predict what will happen over the first 6 months and you may be too.
Because it is a long all inclusive video, you may choose to watch two months at a time depending on where you are in treatment. I would encourage the ADD adult to share this video with family members in the house. It will faciliate discussion and help others understand how to be helpful.
I owe my patients the insight I have gained from their journey of distress to satisfication. Hopefully this is helpful to you.
