When the Mother has ADHD: Challenges for Treating Multiplex ADHD in Families

Dr. Mark Stein is Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Seattle Children's Hospital and principal investigator in the Center for Child, Health, Behavior and Development. His research interests focus on individuals with ADHD and related neurodevelopmental disorders. His work is multidisciplinary in nature, involving genetics, pharmacological treatment and comparative efficacy, pharmacogenemics and sleep of these populations. His latest study tackles an intriguing question: Can you improve how kids at risk for ADHD function by treating their mothers first, either with medicine or parent training?
