Dr Mark Selikowitz, Sydney Developmental Clinic - A Guide to ADHD Medicines
Dr Selikowitz will help you to understand medicines - old and new - that are used to treat ADHD. His talk will cover the story of their discovery, what they are, how they work, what they treat, what their risks are, what their benefits are, what their side-effects are and how to take them safely and effectively. He will also answer questions on ADHD medicines from the audience.
Mark is a consultant developmental paediatrician with over 30 years of experience diagnosing and treating children and young adults with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as ADHD.
He and his colleague, Dr Rory McCarthy, established the Sydney Developmental Clinic in 1993. Since then, the clinic has rapidly grown to become one of the busiest in the world.
Prior to this, Mark was, for over a decade, the director of the Child Developmental unit at the Sydney Children’s Hospital.
He is the author of four award-winning books as well as numerous research articles published in international journals.
