Webinar: ADHD & Anxiety

By Dr. Roberto Olivardia


Up to 30 percent of children with ADHD have a co-occurring anxiety disorder. Anxiety can cause children with ADHD to feel edgy, stressed out, tired, and tense. Anxiety can impact symptoms of ADHD such as causing decreased attention and concentration and resulting in more distractibility.

In this webinar, we discuss why ADHD and anxiety occur together. You will learn how ADHD and anxiety both impact each other. We share strategies for managing and treating anxiety including proper health hygiene, behavioral changes, and therapeutic interventions.

This webinar recording is from a presentation in August of 2021.
