With attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) a growing problem for children across the U.S., information about this condition, its impact, and its treatments is available everywhere and often leaves parents of children with ADHD concerned and confused about which part of that information may be important for a particular child.
Leading researchers are responding to these concerns by hosting ADHD Info Now, a nationwide forum series that's offering a clear, informed look at ADHD. In the South Burlington area, ADHD Info Now will be hosted by Dr. Richard Rubin, a physician familiar with ADHD treatment, counseling, and management who is also actively studying a new investigational drug treatment for ADHD as part of a research effort sponsored by Shire Development, Inc.
As part of this discussion forum, Dr. Rubin will meet with parents in person to discuss many aspects of this condition, and to give a physician's view on current ADHD treatments and research.
ADHD Info Now is free, and open to the public. It will be held at thr Holiday Inn, 1068 Williston Rd., in South Burlington, Thursday, June 11, at 7 p.m.
Parents and teachers of children with ADHD are welcome to attend the event. Rubin will be available to answer questions, and to discuss all the information and options that may be available to children with this condition.
