Hi, my name is Renée Lurie and I am a third-year medical student at the University of Ottawa. This podcast was made in conjunction with PedCases and the Canadian Pediatric Society. This is part three of a three-part series based on the 2018 CPS
Statements on Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. This podcast discusses the new CPS statement, ADHD in children and youth: Part 3—Assessment and treatment
with comorbid ASD, ID, or prematurity. These podcasts were created with the authors of the statements: Dr. Stacey Bélanger from the University of Montreal, Dr. Mark Feldman
from the University of Toronto, and Dr. Brenda Clark from the University of Alberta. For additional information and to view the complete CPS statement, please visit

After listening to this podcast, the learner will be able to:

1. Recognize disorders that are at an increased risk for having co-morbid ADHD and why screening for ADHD is important in these disorders.
2. Understand how to diagnose ADHD in ASD and ID populations.
3. Identify overlapping symptoms between ADHD, ASD and ID.
4. Develop a multifactorial treatment approach for children with comorbid ADHD, and ASD or ID. Identify first-line medications and side-effects of these medications that are common in the ASD and ID populations.
