ADHD & Telehealth

ADHD & telehealth

One of the benefits of telehealth services is that rural areas and under-served populations become accessible for evidence based treatments and services. In a recently published a study in Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, rural populations of children diagnosed with ADHD were given access to services through video and web-based educational sessions. [Myers et al., (2015). Effectiveness of a telehealth service delivery model for treating Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: A community-based randomized controlled trial.] The research showed that the children who received treatment through telehealth services showed significantly more improvements according to the parents.

Dr. David Rabiner, Ph.D of Duke University publishes a monthly newsletter, Attention Research Update. He reviews the most recent research regarding ADHD. His abstract of this timely research can be accessed in full with this link.

As with many other kinds of therapies, access to critical information for all providers makes treatment more successful. Defini-POINT makes this possible for the treatment of ADHD.  Whether you’re a parent, a teacher, or a professional, check out this site today for more comprehensive and effective treatment.
