Growing Up with ADHD
ADHD impacts many aspects of an individual’s life, including academic, social skills, and relationships. In this fireside chat, the panel will explore:
Do children with ADHD eventually outgrow it?
Do adults continue to show significant symptoms of the condition?
How does ADHD affect the daily lives of children, young people, and their families?
How does having ADHD affect a child later in life, depending upon the demands made on the individual by their environment.
The panel will provide a glimpse of what it is like living with the condition. For those who have ADHD to know that they are not alone and for those without ADHD to embrace those who have the condition.
An environment that is sensitive to the needs of an individual with ADHD and aware of the implications of the condition will allow them to achieve their full potential while minimizing adverse effects on themselves and society as a whole.
This event is jointly organized by the Society for the Promotion of ADHD Research and Knowledge (SPARK) and Asia Institute of Mentoring (AIM).
