Meryl Lipton, MD, PhD., teacher, Psychologist and Pediatric Neurologist, brings an integrative approach to the difficulties of ADHD. How do we factor in brain-based issues ranging from high functioning “spectrum “ children to variants of social and emotional learning difficulties? How do we use diagnosis to help these children, their teachers and parents? What are the uses of medication and the “talking cures” of the 21st century? Dr. Lip-ton asks that we join her in a wide ranging discussion of ADHD, what it is and what it is not.
