Has your child been diagnosed with ADHD and a co-occurring disorder?

Maybe you suspect that ADHD isn’t the only challenge your child faces, especially when sadness and moodiness, or excessive worry, seem dominate your child’s feelings.

Regina Bussing, MD, will explore how ADHD co-occurs with childhood diagnoses of depression and anxiety for many children.  Up to 60 percent of children affected by ADHD also cope with a co-occurring condition, though not every child will be affected by depression or anxiety or a related condition. Dr. Bussing will answer parents’ and caregivers’ questions during the webinar.
