Wow! Every parent, grandparent, family member or family friend of a school-age child needs this episode at their fingertips. Child Psychologist and Ph.D candidate, Millicent Phinizy shares her expertise to help us learn the facts and key information we need to know about Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder(ADHD). Millicent discusses in-depth, the signs, symptoms, available resources and how to protect your black child from being misdiagnosed or shorted on resources. Additionally, Millicent sheds light on some of the myths regarding A.D.H.D. commonly shared within the black community, especially when it comes to medication. While some may still view an A.D.H.D. diagnosis as a negative stigma on a black child, Millicent shared how white parents are often taking advantage of resources such as Individualized Education Plans (I.E.P.) and 504 plans (see section 504 of the Americans with. Disabilities Act and in some cases, section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973).
