ADHD in Older Adults: Clinical Guidance and Implications

April 4 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT


EXPERT: David W. Goodman, M.D., LFAPA

ADHD, and its presence in adults over the age of 50, has been explored in international research for the last 15 years. While newly recognized by specialists in clinical practice, ADHD is rarely considered in the diagnostic evaluation of older adults complaining of cognitive symptoms. This webinar will discuss the emerging research and the diagnostic process for evaluating older adults with possible ADHD and distinguishing it from other disorders.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How we know that ADHD continues in older adults over age 50
  • How ADHD is distinguished from other medical and psychiatric explanations
  • About the latest findings on ADHD’s possible association with dementia
  • Which treatment options work to improve daily functional ability
  • How ADHD medications can be prescribed safely to older adults
