Submitted by Community Unit District 300

District 300 Parent University will host a presentation on "ADHD: Current Trends in Diagnosis and Treatment" at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 11, at the District 300 Central Office, 2550 Harnish Drive, Algonquin.

The presentation will feature Dr. Michael Feld, M.D., a well-known child and adolescent psychiatrist from Alexian Brothers Behavioral Health Hospital in Hoffman Estates.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. It is normal for children to have trouble focusing and behaving at one time or another. However, children with ADHD do not just grow out of these behaviors.

The symptoms continue and can cause difficulty at school, at home, or with friends.

A child with ADHD might daydream a lot, forget or lose things, squirm, fidget or talk too much, make careless mistakes or take risks, have trouble taking turns and have difficulty getting along with others.

Dr. Feld speaks nationally on child and adolescent issues and is an expert in the area of ADHD. He has presented more than 500 workshops across the U.S. on topics including parenting, ADHD, and psychiatric medication with children and adolescents.

Known for his open and humorous style, Feld engages his audience in a dialogue about the mental health issues facing children today. Feld consistently receives the highest ratings at conferences and workshops for his refreshing style and candor.

Join District 300 Parent University for what is sure to be an informative evening. Bring a friend as well as any questions you might have. There will be ample time for a Q&A session after the presentation.

This is a free presentation. District 300 asks interested attendees to register for the event by visiting bit.ly/2Peh5rP.
