HPCSA Awards 1 CEU (Level 1)
Parents of children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are often overwhelmed by advice relating to how their children should be treated, whether it be through medical or non-medical interventions. Without an understanding of the scientific proof for these interventions, it is very difficult for parents to make informed decisions. In this presentation, Professor Venter will examine the evidence for both modalities of treatment, discussing what can be expected from the intervention as well as its effect size. He will also explore the common concerns regarding the medical treatment of ADHD.
Professor André Venter currently is the Academic Head of the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health at the University of the Free State. His special area of interest is child development and he obtained his Doctorate in 1991 in this field at the University of Alberta, Canada. He is particularly interested in Cerebral Palsy, Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity, Autism and learning problems. He is the founder and immediate past National Chairman of PANDA-SA (Paediatric Neurology and Development Association of Southern Africa). He is a member of the Advisory Board for Sensory Integration, was an executive member of the International Child Neurology Association and first president of the African Child Neurology Association since 2010.
