Live Discussion: Understanding Your Child's ADHD


A Treatment Team Live Discussion with Eileen Bailey


Eileen Bailey is a writer specializing in ADHD, anxiety, learning disabilities and other health topics. She is the author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Adult ADHD."  Bailey began her quest for information on ADHD over a decade ago when her son was diagnosed at the age of 10.

On September 4, as the first guest in HealthCentral’s ADHD Treatment Team Live Discussion series, Eileen answered questions about managing your child’s ADHD symptoms and how to work with school officials to ensure that they are supportive and sensitive to his or her needs.

Follow the give and take of that discussion in the transcript below.

The ADHD Treatment Team includes four experts covering different aspects of helping your ADHD child--from how their behavior affects your family to how to ensure they succeed at school. A different expert will be available to answer questions during a live discussion each week in September.
