Our keynote speech, Separating Fact from Fiction: A Comprehensive Look at the Current Research on ADHD, is by Stephen Hinshaw. It will discuss what is known about ADHD in the 2020s and the importance of separating myth from fact. Hinshaw will focus on how ADHD develops across the lifespan including the effects on the brains, minds, families, schools, and cultures of individuals with ADHD. There will be specific content on ADHD in girls and women. Another focus will be the factors driving the rising rates of diagnosis in the U.S. and other post-industrial nations. This will include the importance of how psychosocial/educational and medication interventions interact. Lastly, he will discuss stigmatization and the role of educational therapists and other professionals to support clients with ADHD.
