Expert Guest Speaker:

Dr. Alison Poulton

Senior Lecturer in Paediatrics

Sydney Medical School Nepean

The University of Sydney

I am a paediatrician specialising in treating children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). I studied medicine at Girton College Cambridge and Guy’s Hospital London, qualifying in 1982. I trained in paediatrics in Stoke-on-Trent and Birmingham UK before migrating to Australia. I completed my advanced training in Melbourne and Sydney and gained the FRACP in 1993. I work at Nepean Hospital, at Penrith Child and Youth Mental Health Service and in private practice in Penrith and have raised a family of four children.

I was awarded my MD from the University of Cambridge in 2011. This was based on research into the collateral effects of stimulant medication on children’s height, weight, physical maturity and body composition.

I have been studying the effects of stimulant medication in children with ADHD since 1996. The initial period of weight loss associated with the appetite suppression that occurs on a stimulant leads to transient slowing of growth and in the longer term, to slower progress through puberty [1] [2]. Stimulant medication improves the symptoms of ADHD, enhancing motivation; it also stabilises the negative mood in oppositional defiant disorder.

Guest Speaker with lived experience of ADHD:

Kaleb J Lawson

Kaleb was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 7 in 1996. Kaleb has been working with the difficulties and benefits of ADHD for most of his life and has an intricate understanding of how it affects people in their daily lives and how it can be a major benefit in the workplace. Kaleb started with Eremea home Care Services in 2018 as the Customer Engagement officer, he has been working with our managing director Meni Kritikos and our founder Vicky Zalalas since he started explaining and proving how ADHD employees can benefit business of all types and size. Kalebs current aspirations is to continue working for Eremea until he can get the opportunity to run for Parliament with the Labor Party, he hopes one day to be Prime Minister.
