  • My son has ADHD. Is medication safe for him?

    To the Parent with a Concern: In my practice as a developmental pediatrician, I am MUCH more concerned about the cause of a child’s inattention and FIRST want a comprehensive evaluation of his/her learning and cognitive abilities including language. Then I become focused on what to do about those causes. Medication unless administered along with other – often multiple – interventions invites long-term complications that amount to a bandaid over the cause.
