Children who experience difficulty learning are increasingly being diagnosed as having ‘ADHD’ – even though they seem to concentrate well on activities they enjoy and are neither over-active nor badly behaved. Why is this so – and where does ADHD fit in with the myriad of other labels applied to children with a learning difficulty, such as ‘dyslexia’, ‘auditory processing disorder’, ‘dysgraphia’, ‘low muscle tone’, ‘dyspraxia’, etc.?
In his talk, Dr. Selikowitz will answer these and many other questions. After his talk, he will invite questions from the audience.
