This session will address the concept that adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) need to individuate from their parents and participate at a higher level in their own care by understanding their strengths and weaknesses and developing a plan for success. Faculty will address obstacles to optimal functioning, including medication compliance, driving, social life, the need for higher order executive function skills, demands for higher cognitive functioning, and higher work production demands. Tools pediatricians can use to help empower adolescents to take more responsibility for their own care and outcomes will be reviewed, including motivational interviewing. Finally, the session will include the perspectives of adolescents with ADHD and their parents through collaboration with the AAP FamilY Partnerships Network.
