Ohio University's Science Café presents Julie Owens and Steven Evans discussing "MythBusters: The ADHD Collection" on Wednesday, March 8, at 5 p.m. at the Baker Center Theater on the second floor of Baker University Center and via YouTube.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects millions of people across the globe. Yet there are still several myths and misconceptions about the disorder, which create barriers to understanding the disorder, receiving high quality services, and continued public stigma related to the disorder.
Join Owens and Evans as they discuss the research that debunks these myths.
Owens and Evans are co-Directors of the Center for Intervention Research in Schools. As part of the café, Evans and Owens will also describe ways that students can get involved in Center activities.
