What does the DSM-5® have to say about Inattentive AD/HD?  Find out and get the latest on the debate surrounding Sluggish Cognitive Tempo.

Full Description:
The neurophysiology, symptoms, treatment methods, and medications for Inattentive ADD are markedly different, compared to the other types of AD/HD. Since patients with Inattentive AD/HD are not typically as disruptive as those with other types of AD/HD, this type is often misunderstood or goes unrealized by the mental health professional.
This 2-hour webinar introduces participants to the DSM-5® criteria and treatment options for Inattentive AD/HD. A thorough analysis of types and presentations provides an opportunity to discern where there is consensus among the professional community. Explore the debate surrounding Sluggish Cognitive Tempo (SCT) and receive an update on its status as a recognized disorder.

Your Presenter:
KEVIN T. BLAKE, PhD, PLC, is a recognized national authority with over 20 years of experience working with Autism Spectrum Disorder, specific learning disorder, and AD/HD in adolescents and adults. His interest in these topics was spurred by his own struggles to overcome his specific learning disorder – Dyslexia with impairment in phonological processing, spelling, fluency, and comprehension, as well as severe unspecified sensorineural hearing loss. These diagnoses occurred during the first year of his doctoral program, when not much was known about adults with specific learning disorder.

As Dr. Blake struggled to understand his own specific learning disorder, he decided to make his life’s work the diagnosis and treatment of adults with ASD, specific learning disorder, and AD/HD. When he started his professional life, Dr. Blake was one of only a handful of professionals in the country with such a focus. Now he travels the country sharing his personal story and what he has learned about ASD, specific learning disorder, AD/HD, and other neurobiological disorders with professionals who work with these populations, individuals with these disorders, and their loved ones.

Dr. Blake has been a member of several state and national organizations, a facilitator for a Tucson support group for adults with AD/HD for several years, and a published author, with articles appearing in Attention!, LDA Newsbriefs, and Perspectives (of the International Dyslexia Association). He was a member of the LEAD 2000 Congress that advised the United States Congress regarding issues faced by citizens with specific learning disorder in the 21st century.
