Speaker: Professor André Venter

There have recently been several developments in the formulation and types of medication available for children and adults with ADHD in South Africa. Although the landscape has not changed significantly in terms of what medication has to offer, these developments are more cost-effective and are therefore having a profound effect on the availability of suitable medications. This presentation will highlight the pharmaceutical developments while revisiting the benefits and side-effects of these medications. It is essential that professionals working in education and its related fields take cognisance of these new developments in order to better understand the medication that our learners are currently using.

The clinical features of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and that of anxiety disorders in children are different, yet there are many symptoms that may overlap.  In fact, the one condition could mimic the other if a diagnosis is made without taking all the relevant information into consideration. Anxiety is the most common co-morbidity of ADHD in children, but it may also be the sole cause of the sudden onset of symptoms that appear to have ADHD-type characteristics.  In addition, anxiety complicates the management of children with ADHD who present with both. This presentation will focus on the clinical presentation and management of both conditions and highlight how each diagnosis could impair learning.

It is not always easy to love - your dyslexic adolescent - but you can guarantee that if you are feeling bad, your child will be feeling worse….  The transition from primary to high school is often a challenge but it is an inescapable irony that it should coincide with that tumult of change that heralds the start of adult life.  This talk will pinpoint the ways in which dyslexia and changing school demands can heap up the stress and how we, as parents, can help our children (and ourselves) to navigate these sometimes troubled waters.
