Our latest paper on the use of group visits for ADHD follow-up visits is now in print in the October 2017 issue of the Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics!

Since 2010, we have been developing and refining a new way to improve ADHD care in busy pediatric clinics, using a group visit model where 6-8 families are invited to come to a 90 minute appointment to learn, talk about and share experiences about ADHD. The program is now called the TEACH program, which stands for Tailoring Education for ADHD and Children’s Health.┬áParents and children are in separate groups, each with their own curricula that is covered over 5 visits.

In this latest paper, we report on what we learned after asking providers and families what they liked, what was helpful, what they wished was different and what other topics they wanted to learn more about. We examined feedback we received from two of our studies over the years and share the main themes.

The title of the paper is called, “Acceptability of Group Visits for Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in Pediatric Clinics.” Click here to read the abstract (the summary paragraph of the paper).

We’d love to collaborate with and chat with clinics or providers who are interested in trying out the TEACH program! Also please check out our Let’s Chat ADHD Facebook page that was developed with families!
