Can ADHD symptoms be treated by stimulating the brain while someone sleeps? The Monarch external Trigeminal Nerve Stimulation (eTNS) System, a new device recently approved by the US Food and Drug Administration offers that possibility.

We will hear from Dr. Max Wiznitzer, an associate professor of pediatrics, neurology, and international health at Case Western Reserve University. He serves on CHADD's board of directors and the editorial advisory board for Attention magazine, as well as the editorial boards of Lancet Neurology, and the Journal of Child Neurology. Dr. Wiznitzer lectures nationally and internationally about various neurodevelopmental disabilities.
