Managing Complex ADHD in Children of Color (1.5 hours)
Evidence suggests that there are significant racial and ethnic disparities in the diagnosis, treatment and management of ADHD that negatively impact children of color, yet providers are often unaware of these inequities or unprepared to address them. This session first reviews ADHD prevalence and diagnosis/recognition by racial and ethnic group. In addition, variations in behavioral, educational, and mental health outcomes for children of color with Complex ADHD are described. Finally, differences in ADHD management by racial/ethnic group are presented and barriers to care are highlighted, with recommendations made and tools provided to enable culturally respectful care for children of color.
SDBP Complex ADHD Guidelines: Making Guidelines Meaningful to the Child, Family, School Team, and Inter-Professional Colleagues (2 hours)
This interactive workshop will teach participants how to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for the child or adolescent who presents with Complex ADHD. The workshop identifies observable behaviors which present in the child with Complex ADHD. Participants will learn about how these observable behaviors help identify underlying impairments or challenges, and how they reveal targets for intervention. At the conclusion of this workshop, Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric practitioners will be positioned to provide the psychoeducation needed for successful treatment, collaborate with the child and family, and coordinate care with professional and non-professional adults located in schools, clinics, and other settings.
Behavioral Parent Training for Complex Presentations: Fundamentals, Adaptations, and Strategies for Expanding Access (2 hours)
The SDBP Complex ADHD Guidelines and AAP ADHD Guidelines both emphasize the importance of behavioral supports, yet access remains limited for many children. Behavioral parent training (BPT) is an efficacious and cost-effective intervention modality readily adapted for developmental-behavioral clinic settings. This workshop will provide a primer on BPT, adaptations to address comorbid conditions (autism, anxiety), and extensions of BPT models to increase access (group, telehealth, self-guided, etc.). Presenters will embed issues related to diversity, access, and supporting family engagement throughout the workshop, closing with discussion regarding how attendees can improve access to evidence-based behavioral strategies in their work settings.
Implementing the Complex ADHD Guideline: Shared Decision Making and Toolkit Resources (1.5 hours)
This session will address several themes related to implementation of the Complex ADHD Guidelines through the lens of shared decision making (SDM). The session will highlight the value of SDM as a family- and patient-centered strategy for approaching treatment planning around complex ADHD. This session will also review evidence-based screening tools and treatment recommendation resources for supporting three specific populations - preschoolers with ADHD, children with coexisting ADHD and anxiety, and adolescents and transitional age youth with ADHD.
ADHD SIG Clinical Innovation Spotlight: Managing and Preventing Medication Misuse and Diversion in Adolescents and Young Adults with ADHD (1.5 hours)
The new SDBP Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) for Complex ADHD emphasizes treatment across the lifespan. A very serious problem among adolescents and young adults with ADHD is misuse and diversion of psychostimulant medications. As part of the CPG Track, we welcome Brooke Molina of the University of Pittsburgh to discuss this important topic. Dr. Molina is among our field's top leaders in psychosocial interventions for ADHD, having served as an investigator and consultant on the influential Multimodal Treatment of ADHD Study and receiving funding for 25 years for her clinical research on co-occurring substance use and ADHD in adolescents.
Create Your Own Quality Improvement Project to Earn Maintenance of Certification Part 4 Credit Using the Complex ADHD Guidelines (2 hours)
Earn American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 4 credit with QI projects you are already doing in your own practice! Workshop participants will (1) learn how to find existing MOC part 4 activities, (2) become familiar with ABP standards for QI projects that are eligible for MOC part 4 credit, and (3) learn how to use standard QI tools and methods to develop their own MOC 4-eligible projects, using the SDBP Complex ADHD guidelines as an example. Participants should be familiar with the Complex ADHD guideline prior to participating in the workshop.
Complex ADHD Research Platform – Presentation of 5 abstracts (1.5 hours)
Medication Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: DNPNet Data
To investigate the practice patterns of developmental behavioral pediatricians (DBPs) in the treatment of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and coexisting attention/deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Methylphenidate More Effective Than Guanfacine in Preschoolers with ADHD: A DBPNet Study
To determine the effectiveness of methylphenidate (MPH) versus guanfacine (GUAN) for initial ADHD medication treatment in preschool aged children, and dosages at which the medication was first effective.
The Protective Role of Family Resilience for Healthy Weight Behaviors Among Children With ADHD
To investigate the potential protective factor of family resilience for healthy weight behaviors associated with obesity or overweight in children with ADHD.
Autism Spectrum Disorder and Adverse Events to Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors in Children and Adolescents
