ADHD and Sleep by Dr. Margaret Weiss
ADHD is a 24-hour disorder. Nighttime difficulties associated with ADHD include delayed circadian rhythm (going to sleep too late) and night to night variability in sleep patterns. Difficulties with sleep further exacerbate problems with attention and impulse control. ADHD is a disorder of self-regulation that also makes it more difficult to entrain a regular sleep rhythm. This webinar examines how families and individuals with ADHD can improve this vicious cycle and in obtaining a good night’s sleep improve their well-being during the day as well.

My Child Has Just Been Diagnosed with ADHD, Now What?
The doctor or psychologist has just informed you that your child or adolescent has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD. You may be shocked, or maybe you have suspected it for some time. Either way, unless you have been down this path before, you have a long list of questions and concerns.
Your medical professional gave you a quick overview of ADHD, but you are now looking to the Internet for more information and others are giving you a great deal of unsolicited advice. How do you know what’s sound advise and what’s not? What do you tell the school? Should you even tell the school and how do you get your child the help they need? What about getting a psychoeducational assessment? What about treatment? Do all children with ADHD require medication and what about all those natural treatments?
This presentation will answer these questions and more, guide you to your next steps and teach you how to become an informed consumer and advocate for your child.
