  • Title:
    Super Brain Summit. When the ADHD diagnosis is wrong
  • Author: Paul G. Swingle speaker.; Bradley University. Center For Collaborative Brain Research, production company.
  • Description: The advantages of bottom-up rather than top-down diagnostic procedures are well illustrated in cases of children who are inattentive and struggling in school. Academically struggling children are routinely saddled with this wastebasket diagnosis and then treated (e.g., medicated) for the wrong condition. Children have attention difficulties for all sorts of reasons, some of which are, in fact, AD(H)D but most are not. The ClinicalQ rapid brain assessment precisely identifies the neurological conditions of AD(H)D, as well as other causes of the child’s academic difficulties. Fun Facts: Listen to what your brain is telling you. We often try to self-soothe to calm symptoms. For example, children with ADHD will move around constantly to keep their theta waves down.
