Nida Alavi from TRC, attended a short workshop on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) which was organised by Amatullah Aai Saheba Institute at Tahiri Masjid Complex on 23 February 2009. The areas of discussion included the known causes of ADHD and its progression across the lifespan. A considerable amount of time was spent on the complexities of differential diagnosis of ADHD and the importance of a multimodal approach for intervention. A brief overview was also provided of conditions which can often co-exist with ADHD and conditions which may even be confused with it. On the whole, it was a useful workshop.
