    When ADHD Isn't:  Other Cognitive and Psychological Factors That Can Masquerade as ADHD

    Presented by John Bartok, PhD

    Tuesday, November 12, 2019

    7:00 PM

    Rogers Park Montessori School

    1800 W. Balmoral Avenue

    Chicago, IL  60040

    This presentation will briefly review the behaviors that contribute to the appearance and even diagnosis of ADHD in children and then explore other factors that can account for these behaviors.  These include anxiety, emotional dysregulation, reduced executive function, and depression, among others.  In some cases, these conditions can co-occur with ADHD.  The importance of identifying and understanding these interactions will be discussed.  We will also discuss the apparent absence of attentional difficulties when they are actually present.

    Dr. Bartok received his undergraduate degree in Psychology and English; his Masters in Student Personnel and in Human Development; and his doctorate in Clinical Psychology with specialization in Neuropsychology. His pre-doctoral internship was at the University of Michigan and post-doctoral work at the University of Illinois at Chicago Neuropsychiatric Institute.  After serving as an Assistant Professor in Pediatrics at the Rush Neurobehavioral Center, he began a private practice specializing in the neuropsychological assessment of children and young adults and is a speaker on a variety of neuropsychological topics.

    A Certificate of Attendance can be provided upon request.
