Training Description

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Children with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (may act without thinking about what the result will be), or be overly active. Dr. Kristopher Kaliebe, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist is available to discuss this diagnosis as well as answer specific questions related to the disorder.
