Autism and ADHD: Eastside CHADD Zoom meeting October 18, 2023

Join Hower Kwon, MD, on Wednesday, October 18, 2023 from 7 to 8:30pm to learn more about Autism and ADHD.

Dr. Kwon presents an informative program to discuss Autism and ADHD, conditions which can both be present in a child. 

Hower Kwon, MD, is the psychiatrist at his Bellevue Child Behavior Center. Dr. Kwon brings a wealth of experience both as an individual practitioner and a member of the UW Autism Center.

Many have asked for this program so Eastside CHADD is pleased to schedule this meeting so we can learn about these conditions to facilitate the treatment needed.

Autism spectrum disorder occurs in roughly 2% of school-age children, and ADHD affects about 7%. These conditions can also co-occur, making assessment and treatment more complicated. Dr. Kwon will discuss the challenges of assessment and treatment of children affected by both conditions.
