How might a Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician (DB Peds) help you care for your child diagnosed with ADHD? If you have concerns about other conditions that may be influencing your child's ADHD, then this webcast is one you won’t want to miss.

DB Peds are pediatricians with special training in diagnosing and treating developmental and behavioral disorders including ADHD and other conditions that can occur with it, such as:

  • learning disabilities
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • oppositional defiance disorder
  • sleep disorders
  • Tourette syndrome

These conditions can make standard treatment for ADHD much more difficult. DB Peds look for the presence of other medical conditions such as the ones mentioned and then help you come up with a customized treatment plan for your child.

This webcast will also discuss DB Peds’ diverse tools for ADHD treatment. These tools include medication, behavioral interventions at home, school behavioral and learning supports, and lifestyle modifications aimed at optimizing diet, physical activity, and sleep

Presenters’ Bio

Dr. Tanya Froehlich is a developmental-behavioral pediatrician who cares for school age children with learning and behavioral issues. She is also an accomplished researcher and Associate Professor at the University Of Cincinnati Department Of Pediatrics. Her research has a special focus on ADHD, particularly the causes, treatment and public health impact of the disorder.

Interested in understanding why certain children may be more vulnerable to ADHD than others, she also studies the contribution of environmental exposures to ADHD. In Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, she published the first study to investigate the effects of prenatal tobacco exposure and childhood lead exposure on ADHD. She has also demonstrated that the association between poverty and ADHD is partially explained by the effects of these common environmental toxins.

Dr. Froehlich works to enhance care for children with ADHD through teaching and other professional activities. She has served as an invited speaker providing seminars for professionals and workshops for families in international, national, and regional forums. Currently, Dr. Froehlich co-chairs the Society for Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics ADHD Special Interest Group, and coordinates ADHD-related projects and educational seminars for the Society membership in this capacity.
