Join us for our final seminar of the year.
We will take an in-depth look at the ADHD Brain at all ages – from all angles
Hear about the latest research in plain English. Learn how to apply it to yourself and your family.
We have an exciting lineup of speakers and topics:
The Neuroscience of ADHD and Medications – Professor Wai Chen
Hear an overview of the brain receptors and neurocircuits relevant to ADHD in everyday terms. Find out how each different medication acts on the relevant receptors and neurocircuits and how dosages can be fine tuned for maximum benefit.
The ADHD Brain and Learning – A/Professor David Lawrence & Mr Benjamin Goodsell
The Young Minds Matter Survey examined NAPLAN records of 5,000 adolescents. This presentation will present evidence showing that students with mental disorders have poorer academic outcomes than their peers. Students with ADHD and conduct disorder had the lowest academic performance of all. Hear the authors’ recommendations, including: early childhood interventions, and on-going management for adolescents
The ADHD Brain and Sleep – Professor Desiree Silva and Mr Martin Exell
Good sleep is important for both physical development and mental well-being. Chronic sleep deprivation can result in poor concentration at school, work and restless, irritable daytime behaviour. Sleep requirements alter with age. Children and adults with ADHD have a high incidence of sleep problems. This talk will focus on case presentations, practical questions and solutions to consider when children and adults with ADHD have sleep issues.
The ADHD Brain and Computer Addiction – Mr Derek Cohen
Screens are everywhere. Children today have grown up with them and they are an accepted and expected part of their lives. Studies demonstrate that the ADHD brain is especially vulnerable to the lure of screens. Is there a line we may draw that decides where use becomes abuse? What guidelines and strategies could be put in place for individuals and families?
The Brain and Exercise – Dr Bonnie Furzer
Exercise is good for your mental health. Find out why, and what you can do for the most benefit.
The Second Brain (Microbiome) – Professor Susan Prescott
We are made up of 90% bacterial genes and only 10% human genes. Most of our bacterial genes live in our gut and can have control over most organs including our brain. Going with your ‘gut feeling’ or having ‘butterflies in your stomach’ are signals from your second brain. What we eat and how we interact with our environment can also affect our mood, anxiety and ADHD symptoms, which are now thought to be directly related to our gut bacteria. Having diverse healthy gut bacteria is good for our mental health.
Gourmet Lunch and Morning Tea Included.
