From page A7 | October 17, 2013 |

The UC Davis MIND Institute has announced the details of its 2013-14 “Minds Behind the MIND” lecture series.

The free, public presentations run from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the MIND Institute Auditorium, at 2825 50th St. in Sacramento. Information about studies related to the evening’s discussion topic will be available an hour beforehand in the lobby.

The schedule:

Nov. 20: “ADHD Grows UP: Transitions to Adulthood” speakers are scheduled to include Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder program director Julie Schweitzer, clinic director J. Faye Dixon, medical director Murat Pakyurek and child and adolescent psychiatrist Khyati Brahmbhatt.

Other planned participants: Christine O’Dell, UCD Student Disability Center learning disabilities specialist, Jennifer Borenstein, a college counselor; and Tomoko Vidales, Greater Sacramento branch coordinator of Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.

After the presentation, attendees will be divided into groups: one for teens and young adults with ADHD and one for their family members. Both will learn about the therapeutic uses of technology for people with ADHD.

The teens and young adults also will discuss myths about ADHD and the skills necessary for successful transition to adulthood. Parents will discuss ways to support their children.

Feb. 19: Maria Diez-Juan and Tasha Oswald, fellows in the institute’s Autism Research Training Program, who are using tablet computers as part of their research with children. MIND Institute research indicates use of this technology helps children with neurodevelopmental disabilities in reading comprehension and communication.

Representatives of the UCD School of Education will demonstrate a website, now under development, intended to provide information to families of children with neurodevelopmental disabilities.

April 16: Sally Rogers, professor in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and Judy Van de Water, an immunologist and professor in the department of internal medicine, will provide updates on their autism spectrum disorder research.
